Poha / Awlakki Chivda (Thin Flattened rice /beaten rice flakes mix) – A Guilt Free Munching

The region of Hubli in Karnataka where I spent my childhood and college days is very famous for this snack. The local people here are so warm, welcoming and have always to offer you tea with this famous snack Poha Chivda known there as Awlakki Chuda accompanied with some besan laddoos. Looking at our love for these chivdas my mom learnt how to prepare this snack from our neighbor aunty and like every other recipe she narrated it to me as well.
My mom makes it a point to keep the snack dabbas fully loaded with   chaklis,shakkarpara,namak paras, matris ,bhadangs, chivdas etc .so that everyone at home & our guests always have homemade snacks.
Even when we would be back from school we would wait for our mom to give us these tasty snacks along with milk.
I generally avoid buying snacks from markets & I love to store this snack during the cold seasons as it tastes yummy with tea.

So here comes from my Grand Veg Kitchen with all love & sweet memories of Hubli…..
