Rice Crispies Chivda

I found this recipe on Meera's Enjoy Indian Food and made it for Diwali faraal last year. Ever since, I have been hooked on to it and make a fresh batch the moment the earlier one is over. Here's how I made it this time around:

5 cups Rice Crispies cereal

1 cup shev/aloo bhujia

4 tsp oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

a generous pinch of asafotida

1 tsp turmeric pwd

2 dry red chillies - broken & deseeded

Handful of roasted peanuts

Handful of roasted cashewnuts

1 tsp coriander pwd

1 tsp cumin pwd

1 tsp fennel/saunf pwd

1/2 tsp red chilli pwd

1/4 tsp cloves pwd

1/4 tsp cinnamon pwd

1/2 tsp amchur pwd

Salt & sugar to taste

Heat the oil in a large wide pan. Temper it with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and asafotida in that order. Add the turmeric pwd & red chillies. Fry for a minute. Add the peanuts and cashewnuts, fry another few mins. Add all the dry masals, salt, sugar, rice crispies & shev and mix well. Saute on medium low for 5 mins. Allow to cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
