DIRECTIONS

  • Put the rice krispies in a large bowl.
  • Fry the peanuts and cashew pieces in batches in the oil until light brown.
  • (Take them out immediately, as they'll continue to cook a bit after you do!).
  • Put them on top of the rice krispies.
  • Fry the raisins in batches, until they puff-add to rice krispies mixture.
  • In the leftover oil, pop the mustard seeds.
  • Add the chilis and curry leaves (be careful of splattering when you do!).
  • Heat on low flame for a couple of minutes, to temper the oil.
  • Add the asafoetida-turn the flame off.
  • Add the turmeric, cayenne, and cumin. Mix well.
  • Add a couple of cups of the rice krispies/nuts/raisins into the pan to mix with spices.
  • Put that back in the bowl with the rest of the stuff.
  • Mix thoroughly, until you get a uniform color.
  • Add sugar and salt to taste and mix again.
