Roasted Poha/ aval and nuts mixture.

Roasted poha with nuts.

I always prefer oil less snack because of health reasons. Thought of making some evening snack without much oil. Poha with nuts are very healthy, crispy, spicy snack for all. I have added cashews, almonds, kismis, peanuts, dried coconut pieces etc. You can add any nuts of your choice.

Preparation time approx 20 minutes.


4 cups thin poha

1/ 4 cup cashewnuts,

1/4 cup almonds,

1/4 cup groundnuts,

1/4 cup kismis.

2 tbsp white thil.

1/4 cup roasted daal/ chutney dal/ pottukadalai.

Few curry leaves.

1/4 cup chopped dried coconut

1 tsp Roasted jeera powder

1 tsp dhaniya powder.

1 tsp turmeric powder.
