Baked Red Poha Chivda/Mixture

A low-calorie and healthy snack, which is very easy to prepare. It requires less oil since it is baked. I have used red poha, which is more health benefits than white poha with which this mixture is usually made. Ideal for evening snacks when you are craving for something spicy along with a cup of tea or coffee.

1. Red Poha, 1 cup.
2. Roasted channa dhal, 1/4 cup.
3. Raw peanuts, 1/4 cup.
4. Mustard seeds, 1/2 teaspoon.
5. Curry leaves, a sprig.
6. Asafetida, a pinch.
7. Salt, as per taste.
8. Coconut powder, 1 tablespoon, (optional).
9. Chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Meanwhile heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds and let it splutter.  Turn off the stove and add the curry leaves, chili powder, and asafetida.  Mix this along with the poha and peanuts and mix everything well with the required salt. Spread this mixture on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until the poha is crisp. Once the mixture is cooled down, add the roasted channa dhal, mix well and serve.
