Oats Chiwda

Chiwda is a wholesome and healthy alternative to authentic fried snacks. This oats chiwda is completely irresistible and quick. It is the kind of snacks made during the festivals along with the sweet dessert.

This wholesome lip-smacking, sweet and tangy snack can be made within less than 10 min and I love to have with my masala chai. As an Indian, I like sweet and spicy both types of taste. So, I made various kinds of chiwda throughout the year; doesn't need any festivity.

You can enjoy it any time of the day. It has a crispy texture from roasted oats along with the nuttiness from the dry fruits, sweetness, from sugar and sultanas, lots of spices, flavoured with asafoetida, curry leaf (used dried ones but fresh can also be used) and tangy-ness from anardana.

It's always best to make homemade chiwda, tastes better than store-bought ones and also more healthy. I love to make my kind of snacks because my meal plate is not completed without namkeen or chiwda and papad, achar. In some way, I am a typical Marwari.

It's just utterly delicious, I couldn't stop myself from making this beauty again and again with lots of variations. Enjoy this quick and healthy snack when you have tea/coffee parties with your friends ( like I used to but not now). One of my best memories of home.

Happy Friday šŸ™‚
