Poha Chivda is my humble dedication to two things special – My City Mumbai which has a cosmopolitan vibe that allows you to explore cuisines of different cultures & secondly, childhood memories of eating them during Diwali. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to have neighbours from various states, Maharashtrians being most in numbers & during festive occasions like Diwali, we exchanged sweets and snacks. This chivda was the one things I always looked forward to eating.
While I love my fried snacks (trust me on this!), it does make me guilty to consume a lot of oil and salt. Poha Chivda or Thin Poha Chivda comes to my rescue here. Low in oil but great in taste, this easy recipe is certainly going to be a regular feature at your home post Diwali too.
