Homemade Chiwda Namkeen


  • 250 grams - thin rice flakes
  • 1/3 cup - roasted black gram de-husked
  • 1/2 cup - dry coconut sliced
  • 2 & a 1/2 tablespoons - oil
  • 1/2 cup - peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon - turmeric powder
  • 1/8 cup - sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon - tartaric acid
  • 4-5 dried red chillies split them using kitchen shear
  • Salt to taste
  • Curry leaves - A few as per choice


  1. Grind together sugar, salt and tartaric acid. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in wok, add peanuts. Fry them till they are roasted nicely. Remove from the wok and set aside.
  3. Add split chillies, curry leaves and sliced coconut. Fry them till coconut turns nice golden brown or the tenderness is gone and it is crisp.
  4. Add roasted black chanas. Mix well.
  5. Now add turmeric powder, rice flakes and roasted peanuts. Add spice mix as per taste.
  6. Allow to cool and store in air-tight container. Serve as a snack.
My Tip: This stores well and doesn't even turn smelly after a period of time.

    For thick flakes you would need to fry them Geeta.

    It depends on the thinness of flakes. You get very thin flakes in Maharshtra/ Gujrat belt as this roasted chiwda is very common here but if you are from North India, then you won't get this thin flakes there. Even I am from NCR and whenever I travel, I carry thin rice flakes for my mom.

    sorry to bother again.I once tried dry roasting but rice flakes came out very hard what could be the reason

    No I havent fried the rice flakes, I only dry roasted them as mentioned in the recipe, Geeta.
