Chewda

Chewda ( Mangalorean Mixture )

My grandma used to make chewda in large quantities and we loved it as children, picking out the nuts and raisins and leaving the rest for the adults.  I like to make this during Christmas in vast quantities to give away and also to last well into the New Year.  It’s easy to make, a very quick treat and delicious too.  Quite often we finish a large container between the three of us while watching a family movie.  And then I make some more!
The Recipe:
5 cups cornflakes; a handful each of peanuts, almonds, cashewnuts; roasted bengal gram, and raisins; 5 sprigs of curry leaves; 1 tsp chilli powder or to taste; 1 tsp salt; 1 tsp brown sugar; 1 tbsp oil.
 
Bake the cornflakes, and nuts seperately in a preheated oven at 100 C for 10 minutes each.  Heat a nonstick pan and add the oil, curry leaves and raisins.  Stir fry till curry leaves are crisp- this takes a minute.  Switch off and add the chilli powder, salt and sugar.  Mix together.  Add the rest of the ingredients and gently mix together.  Cool and store in air tight containers.
