Cornflake mixture—an easy munch on Indian snack

I love crunchy munchy snacks…especially this mixture….its a must buy for every time I hit the Indian grocery store….back home in Kerala, we get this corn flake mixture in ‘Honest’ bakery…fresh and yummy…i can easily gobble down a packet in a few mins :)
I still remember those days when my dad used to buy these mixture and roasted peanuts very religiously from ‘Honest’ (well, he buys it now a days too…), I eat it right from the packet and there goes my sweet mother cribbing about the pimples that used to pop up on my face the very next day….thanks to my oily skin….

see this, even my li’l one loves to pick the corn flakes from it…mommy’s girl :)

very easy to put together….

You’ll need:

Corn flakes: 3 cups
Roasted nuts: 1 cup (mostly shelled peanuts and cashew nuts)
Golden raisins: 1/4 cup
Chili powder: 1 tsp
Turmeric powder” 1/3 tsp
Salt: to taste
Sugar: 1/2 tsp
Lime juice: 1 tsp
Curry leaves: a few sprigs

Note: You can vary it by adding any kind of nuts or dry fruits of your choice…like almonds, pistachios, dried   cranberreis, dried apricot etc…

How to make:

Heat oil in a pan and toss in the raisin and nuts.Add the curry leaves and stir for a min or two.
Reduce the heat to low, and add the chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and sugar.
Carefully mix in the tsp of lime juice, for it will make the oil splatter.
Now slowly fold in the cornflakes in batches and let it stand on low flame for about 3-4 min, until the cornflakes gets coated well with the spice mixture.
Let it cool and store in an airtight container….and start munching :)
