Step 1

Chiwda is a snack ( indeed a breakfast in some communities ) which is akin to popcorn etc.. and is easy to make, preseve and have .. here is how it is made: heat about 5 table spoons of cooking oil in a kadai, add to it a quarter spoon of black mustard seeds, soaked chickpeas and peanuts; wait till the peanuts are fully fried, then add a quarter spoon of haldi( turmeric) powder, 4 or 5 red chillies, and karepak; then add the flaked rice ( poha ) and roast the entire mass till the flaked rice becomes crisp.. then add salt to taste and allow to cool before consuming..
Note: the best kind of flaked rice for this is the very fine variety ... also you can add copra peices, cashew nuts, raisins if you so prefer
