Generally, the ingredients for mixture or chivda is deep fried in oil. This is a simple, guilt free, low fat version of aval mixture. Using ghee enhances the flavour. You can also use oil instead of ghee. 

INGREDIENTS:

Roasted peanuts - 2 tablespoons

Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - a generous pinch
Curry leaves - a sprig
Salt - to taste
Ghee / Oil - 1 tablespoon

METHOD:

Buy thick aval pori (the one which you get for karthigai pori urundai). Sieve well without any sand. OR take a clean muslin cloth, put aval pori in it and slightly swing the cloth so that the mud sticks to the cloth. Remove the aval, dust the cloth and repeat until there is no mud.

Heat ghee in a pan. Add curry leaves and roast a bit. Now add peanuts, turmeric powder, chilli powder and hing. Give a quick saute and add aval pori. Simmer the stove and mix well until poricha aval / roasted poha gets coated well with all the spices and turns crisp. Crispy, light and guilt free aval mixture /poha chivda is ready. When cool, store in an airtight container.  

NOTE: Store bought sev or omapodi can also be added.
