I have used honey bunches of oats cereal to make this delicious chivda recipe. Honey bunches of oats cereal is combination of cornflakes and honey coated oats. This is my aunt’s recipe. I am very thankful to her for sharing her recipe with me. This recipe is little similar to cornflakes chivda.

I have added a very small pinch of citric acid also known as (nimboo ful or limbu na ful) to this recipe. Thus it has balanced flavor of sweetness from honey coated oats & raisins with tanginess from citric acid.

I have added different nuts like peanuts, cashews and dalia. You can totally add or skip any nuts and make it as per your liking. Even you can increase and decrease the quantity of nuts of your choice.

A teaspoon of chili powder will give you medium spicy taste. If making it for kids adjust the red chili powder accordingly.

For calorie conscious people, this is the perfect chivda or mixture recipe for this Diwali festival. Enjoy a small bowl of chivda as a snack without any worry of gaining weight. 🙂
