Flaked rice and papad sautéed with spices, peanuts and dry coconut is what describes this quick Gujarati papad poha chivda. It is perfectly balanced with a little powdered sugar. The use of powdered sugar is a must so that it mixes well with the chivda. If you don’t have powdered sugar, grind the table sugar in a mixer and sieve it before use.

Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds. When the seeds crackle, add the peanuts and dry coconut and sauté on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour.

Add the roasted beaten rice, sugar, salt and crushed roasted papad, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute. Cool and store in an air-tight container.
