Directions(For qty, refer to the ingredients section)
- Heat 1/2 tsp ghee in a heavy saucepan, add peanuts, cashews and pumpkin seeds. Roast it until golden brown, then take them out on a napkin.
- In the same saucepan now add asafoetida, turmeric powder (just for the colour), puffed rice, red poha, oats, curry leaves, green chillies and stir fry them, until crisp.
- Now toss in the roasted peanuts, cashews and pumpkin seeds. Mix it well. Finally adjust the seasoning with salt (We have used chilli masala pumpkin which is spicy enough, you can add red chilli powder as per your choice).
- Voila! your crunchy mixture is ready.
