Diwali Sweets and Savouries - Corn Flakes Chivda

Gayathri Nagesh and Sumathi Hariharan
We Indians, make different sweets and savouries during festivals especially for the Diwali. Today we are going to make the crisp and crunchy Corn Flakes Chivda. The recipe and preparation is tried and tested by our patrons Gayathri Nagesh and Sumathi Hariharan, which they have shared with you all.
The Corn Flakes we use in this preparation is not the usual ready-to-eat Corn Flakes. We can buy raw Corn Flakes which normally don't have anything added to it. In a matter of half an hour or so, we can make crispy, crunchy and tasty Corn Flakes Chivda at home though you can buy the same in many of the bakeries.
Mix together Red Chilli Powder, Salt and Sugar Powder with every batch of hot Corn Flakes and add a little Hing and mix well immediately. Masala catches the Flakes well when it is hot.
Spreading on a news paper will absorb most of the oil on the mixture.
