Jada Poha Chivda is the homemade version of an all-time favourite Maharashtrian jar snack. With a mix of sweet, salty and nutty flavours, and a wondrous blend of textures, the Jada Poha Chivda is sure to appeal to young and old alike.

It is important to deep-fry each of the ingredients separately and drain them before mixing together. And don’t forget the pinch of sugar because it is responsible for the unique flavour of the chivda.

This Jada Poha Chivda takes quite similar to the store-bought one, but has a fresher taste and crispier mouth-feel.
