Chivda are most popular crunchy and tasty versatile snack. It is a snack made with flaked rice seasoned with right blend of spices. But here I used corn flakes as the corn flakes or any cereal replacement helps you eat fewer calories than you normally would.

  1. What a delicious, healthful snack. I think it must be the best use of cornflakes I have ever seen.


  2. That’s a good idea Chitra 🙂


  3. I make Chivda with Honey Nut Cheerios, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and Rice Crispies Cereal along with Chana Dal and nuts. Also in the end, add Dried Cranberries instead of Raisins. Since all cereals are baked it takes minimum effort to make healthy Chivda.
