Chivda (semi spicy puffed rice snack)

This is my favorite snack when I feel hungry. It is light and tastes very nice. Also isn't too spicy to cause stomach upset

What you need:
Thin poha 3 cups (should be as flat as possible)
Oil 2 spoons
Mustard seeds 1 spoon
Curry leaves 3-4
Green chillies 2 finely chopped
Roasted peanuts 3 spoons
Roasted channa dal 3 spoon
Turmeric powder 1/2 spoon
Salt 1 spoon
Sugar 1 spoon

1) Microwave poha for 2 minutes and stir every 20 seconds
2) Heat oil in pan
3) Add mustard seeds, curry leaves & green chillies
4) Add this mixture to poha in bowl
5) Add all remaining ingredients in the bowl
6) Mix it well until it is consistent - preferably cover the pan and toss it up and down, inverting it once in a while
7) Microwave for another minute
8) Let it cool and serve

Add dry pan fried sliced coconut pieces for extra flavor
