For Indians, tea is more than just a brewed beverage, it’s an emotion. No matter what time of the day it is, a cup of hot kadak chai has the power to make everything right. While we don’t need a specific time to enjoy this beverage, evening tea-time holds a special place in our heart. And what makes it even more special is the endless list of scrumptious snacks that we pair it with. One such popular evening snack is chivda – a delicious namkeen mixture made with flattened rice flakes (poha), spices, dry fruits and nuts. While most of us buy chivda from our local market, they are loaded with preservatives and salt and can be quite harmful for our health. Considering this, here we bring you a delicious homemade chivda recipe that is super easy to make.
