chivda (Roasted Poha

Chivda is a gujarati snack. Its is Quick and easy to make unlike mixture. It is also healthy beacuse its not fried ; it roasted.

If you have some guest at home you can make this right away.

I still remember, when i way away from my house for work, i stayed at pune, there my roommats would get this in a large cover which we will complete in a short time.

What i am trying to say is its not only easy it also taste's delicious.
