In a broad pan roast poha on slow flame till it becomes crunchy but it make sure not dark in color. Keep it separate.

When you roast this Poha, it will be slightly shrink. Keep stirring occasionally, else it can burn and break very easily.

My mom use to roast in Solar Cooker. It’s a Hassel free way. Just keep Poha in big plate and keep in solar cooker. No need to stirring .

Add Salt , Powdered Sugar and Dry Mango Powder in Poha. Mix it nicely and carefully.

In another pan heat Oil . Add Peanuts , Roasted Gram Dal , Dry Coconut , green Chillies , Curry Leaves .. Roast very well. Roast till it turned light brown in colour..

Add Hing , Turmeric Powder and mix well.

Now pour it on Poha . Mix it. Tasty Poha Chivda is ready. Once cool completely store in a sir tight container and enjoy.

One can store this mixture upto a month.

If you find , this mixture is loosing its crunchiness after few days , just take in wok , allow it to roast perfectly, on the slowest flame)..
