OATS CHIVDA

 

I am fond of chivda and South Indian Mixtures. But then, who isn’t? But in that process we all end p in deep frying and or calorie intakes are also considerably increased. But this wonder recipe with very less oil content and no compromise on the taste, I was too much tempted to try out. Recently my Mother-in Law was diagnosed with very high Diabetics and I had to make many changes in her daily diet. From white rice to red and brown rice and switching to millets was the many changes that is taking place in her diet now. But when I was thinking of making something nice for snacking during tea time, this oats chivda popped my mind. I am not very fond of oats but this recipe was a must try and so I started to make it. This involved very less oil and in a matter of minutes this recipe was made and served.

As you can see I am making many dishes nowadays with my new Nirlep Selec+ fry pan, tawa and khadais. These make the work easier as it has excellent coating and makes the cleaning so much easier. The handles are easy to hold while cooking and it is a priceless asset to me. Coming to the chivda recipe as Diwali is nearing, it is a nice opportunity to try out this less oil snack and make your family and friends happy. As it has oats as the main ingredient, it is very healthy and easily digestible too. You can alter the ingredients and add nuts of your choice. You can experiment with your taste and make accordingly. As it was very easy recipe I also made a sweet which is coming soon in my blog.So stay tuned at Nithya’s Kitchen for more…
