Madras Mixture

Mixture is an indispensable part of our Diwali celebrations. I always felt that making mixture was a daunting task. But later on I realized that, making small quantities of all items and mixing together, gives a good quantity of delicious homemade mixture. So instead of making a large quantity of a single item, it makes sense to make small quantities of many items and mix them to make the mixture. 

What you'll need
  1. Omapodi - 2 cup
  2. Kara Boondi - 2 cup 
  3. Rice Flakes/Aval - 1/2 cup
  4. Peanuts - 1/2 cup
  5. Roasted Gram Dal/Pottukadali - 1/2 cup
  6. Curry Leaves - few
  7. Salt to taste 
  8. Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp 
  9. Asafoetida - generous pinch

  1. Deep fry the peanuts, roasted chana dal and rice flakes in oil and drain them separately in a tissue paper.
  2. Also fry the curry leaves and drain them.
  3. Once drained, transfer to a vessel, add salt, chilli powder and asafoetida and toss well. 
  4. In a deep wide bowl, add the omapodi, karaboondi and the remaining fried items, rice flakes, roasted channa dal, peanuts and curry leaves and toss everything well. 
  5. Cool and store in airtight container.

You can add fried cashewnuts too.
