Bhajke Pohe Chivda

Chivda is a always pepared in every Maharashtrian household and is had as an evening healthy snack.  This crispy beaten rice flavored with nuts, raisins etc., makes a delicious and healthy snack. I generally make this chivda many times in the year, but for festivals its a must do snack and it tastes more delicious than any other time. Each household has a different version and method of preparing this chivda. There are many types of it but this is a healthy and non fried version of it. The cooking process requires a bit of planning, so keep all the ingredients ready, this helps and is efficient too.
