Poha Chudwa(Atukula chudwa/mixture)

 Chudwa is wonderful mixture and easy to make take less time and consumes less oil.we can store the chudwa about 1 month.

Ingredients are as follows:-

Peanuts -1/4cup
Broken Cashew nuts-1/4 cup
Green chillies-10
Red chillies -4 or 5
Garlic cloves-3 or 4(optional)
Salt - 3 tsp
Sugar -1/2 tsp
curry leaves - 2 spring
vegetable oil /olive oil -6 tsp
Turmeric powder -1/2 tsp
Method :-
         Take wide pan ,heat the pan  and add the oil .Add the pinch of turmeric powder to oil and  add poha fry it 10 mins on low flame.
               here  no need to fry the poha separately you can add poha directly in this process.but when u fry poha before the process ,the chudwa will more crispy.
Take the poha into another bowl .put the pan and heat the oil  again add mustad seeds and cumin seeds and corainder seeds.
 when they spluttering add pea nuts ,cashew nuts, rosted chana dal.pea nuts take more time to fry cashew nuts less time to fry rosted chana dal already rosted ,no need fry for long time. so first add pea nuts saute 2 mins and then add cashew nuts saute 1 mins and then add rosted chana saute about few seconds.add garlic cloves saute 2 mins.
add  red chillies saute 1 min and then add green chillies and turmeric powder ,curry leaves saute them now add salt and sugar and mix well.
then  add the poha which are already fried.mix them nicely till the poha gives crisp sound.usally it takes about 5mins.when u mix poha u should be carefull because the poha may  burn.
 Chudwa is ready.u can  store the chudwa nearly 1 month ,store it in air tight container then it's won't loose crispiness.
  serve with chopped onion and lemon juice.or also u can eat with curd mix it in chudwa .
