37 TORTILLA MIXTURE/CHEVDA

After trying tortilla chips and cereal chevda many times, thought of making this simple snack combining both ideas. Tasted great and was a perfect snack with a cup of coffee. The chips alone taste great and feels just like the kara biscuit that we do at home with wheat/maida flour.


Tortilla wraps - 4
Oil for deep frying
Salt - very little
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Dalia split( fried channa dhal/pottu kadalai) - 2 tbsp
Raw peanuts - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Thick aval/puha - a handful


Cut tortillas into thin pieces using a pizza slicer or clippers. Heat oil for deep frying and in small batches. Fry till nice brown. Remove and keep aside. In the same pan add thick aval and fry till they are nicely puffed up.
Seperately in a different pan heat a tbsp of oil and add peanuts , fry for a minute and add fried channa dhal and curry leaves. Fry till nice brown. If needed can also add 1 or 2 broken red chillies and few crushed garlic flakes with skin. Mix everything together and serve.

This goes straight to Priya's Hearts for Valentine's day event
