South Indian Mixture Recipe | Spicy Mixture | Diwali Snacks Recipes

Happy Diwali to all my readers and friends. I am really excited to share this Mixture recipe for this special occasion. It was in my to-do list for a long time now. Though this is time-consuming, it is worth giving it a try. This gives so much volume that you can share with your loved ones for this festive season. Plan well in advance and start preparing it. I prefer my mixture this way and I have given other combination in notes section. Everyone at my home loved it. I took some to my office and they too really loved it. Let's see the preparation:
Omapodi - 1 & 1/2 cup
Kara boondi - 1 & 1/2 cup
Ribbon Pakkoda - 1/2 Cup
Peanuts - 1/4 cup
Fried gram dal(Pottukadalai) - 1/4 cup
Curry leaves - a handful
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a generous pinch
1. Prepare the omapodi as per this recipe and drain it in kitchen towel.
2. Prepare the ribbon pakoda as per this recipe and drain it in kitchen towel.
3. Prepare the kara bhoondi as per this recipe and drain it in kitchen towel.
4. Similarly deep fry the ground nuts, fried gram dal and curry leaves. Make sure not to burn it, fry until crispy and drain it in tissue paper.
5. Now, just we need to mix everything. In a wide bowl add the salt, chilli powder and asafoetida.
6. Then add all the fried items and give it a gently mix until the everything coats well with chilli powder, salt.
Cool it completely and store it in an air tight container. Serve it along with evening coffee.

Points to remember:
  • I prepared each item with around 1.5 cups of gram flour/kadalai maavu. For this quantity you will get approximately 2 kg's of mixture. But I mixed as per the quantity mentioned in the ingredients column. I reserved a bottle of omapodi for Happy and a bottle of Ribbon Pakkoda for Jany.
  • You can also add broken pieces of thattai, murukuu, fried aval/poha, fried cashew nuts, Maida biscuits etc.
  • To get sweet mixture, just add few tsp of powdered sugar along with the mixture.
Warm Regards,
Happy's Cook - Divya
