Corn Poha Mixture

My mom makes this spicy corn poha mixture often at home for evening snacks. Talking of snacks, back in Goa, we had a big Milton brand box where mom stored all snacks, both store bought and homemade .We would just devour out everything so quickly and she had to make different snacks very often to replenish the box and keep us satisfied :). The most snack consumer in our house was dad, he would wake up in the middle of night munch on snacks and sit to read newspaper. (yes, he had to read everything from headlines to obituary section never missed a single line). I make these often these days since my little one likes to eat it. 

What you need :
2 cups -Corn Poha 
1 cup thick poha
1/4 cup groundnuts
1/4 cup chana dalia
few curry leaves
2 teaspoon - red chilly powder ( as per your tolerance level)
salt to taste
Oil to fry ( I use canola oil)

How it's Made :
Heat oil in a deep pan (kadai), and deep fry all the first 5 ingredients seperately in medium heat and put in on a paper towel to drain off the oil.  when you add corn poha to fry, put very little in oil as they swell up and occupy the entire pan. When still hot sprinkle the chilly powder,salt and mix all the ingredients gently. You can also fry some dry coconut pieces for added taste,  I didn't use it this time since I didn't have any at home.  Cool it to room temperature and store in an airtight container.
