Makai no Chevdo is a gujarati snack. Packed with flavors of sweet, spicy & tangy, these chevdo is a great afternoon snack.
Back home it was a daily routine of having snacks with an afternoon tea. Tea was never served without the accompaniment of snack. But this custom has been lost in the busy lifestyle. But now it is just weekends, we have a leisure time having variety of snacks along with tea. Few years back I have posted one more dry snack Murmura
Today sharing you one of our favorite afternoon snacks, Makai no Chevdo aka cornflake snack. You can get dried flat makai in any Indian store. It is also called Makai Poha. In UAE, it is easily available in Al Adil stores in their lentils section. It comes in two varieties : white & yellow. Usually this snack is made from yellow one.
For preparing Makai no chevdo we deep fry the makai poha . Drain the excess oil very nicely. To make it more tasty , we add fried peanuts and sometimes sliced dry coconut too. And then spice it up with citric acid, powder sugar, salt & red chilly powder for flavor. Lastly it is tempered with sesame and curry leaves. I did not have any white sesame with me, so I have not done the tempering. But I am sharing the exact recipe as it is made. Informing you in advance so don’t search any sesame or curry leaves in the picture. Hehe. And to speak the truth, this makai is already fried so why add another tempering
