  • Cornflakes - 250 gms dried
  • Aval or Poha - 1/2 cup
  • Roasted Gram dal – 1/4 cup
  • Raw unsalted peanuts – 1/2 cup
  • Cashew nuts – 15
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Sugar – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – 1 tsp


  • In a microwave proof bowl place the corn flakes and microwave at high for 3-4 minutes till they pop up and become crisp. I spread it directly on the turn table.
  • Mix once after every minute to avoid burning and to get crisply done flakes. Transfer to a bowl. I did it in 2 batches.
  • Like wise repeat for aval (poha), peanuts, roasted gram dal, cashew nuts one after the other.
  • Microwave each ingredient separately as the roasting time will differ and once done keep transferring to the same bowl.
  • Heat a big pan or kadai. Add oil and let it become hot almost to a smoking level. Turn off flame and take the pan off the stove.
  • Immediately add red chilli powder, salt, sugar and curry leaves and mix briskly.
  • Add all the roasted ingredients to the pan and mix gently till all the ingredients get well coated.
  • Store this cornflakes mixture in an air tight container and enjoy at leisure.
