Cornflakes mixture

I  adapted this recipe from Mallika Badrinath’s recipe book Murrukkus and Mixtures..When I was in college my aunty Shalini akka had introduced me to her cookery books and the first book bought by me was her Rice dishes book.Then I started collecting her other editions one by one as she introduced it and now have few collections.

Cornflakes(Maize flakes)-2 cups (dried and which is used for mixture)
Cashewnuts-1/4 cup
Raw groundnut-1/2 cup
Roasted gram-1/2 cup
Almonds-1/4 cup(optional)
Curry leaves-5-6 sprigs
Oil- to deep fry

Ingredients for the spice mix:
Sugar-3 tbsp approx powdered
Chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Roasted cumin powder-1/4 tsp
Asafoetida powder-a pinch


  1. Mix all the spice mix in a small bowl and keep it aside.
  2. Heat oil and deep fry all the dry fruits,roasted gram,groundnuts and curry leaves one by one separately and keep it ready.
  3. Heat oil and deep fry the cornflakes until crisp.
  4. Always use a kitchen tissue once you deep fry any ingredient.
  5. Transfer the cornflakes in a wide bowl and add spice mix when it is still hot.
  6. This is done so that the cornflakes gets coated to the spice mix well.
  7. Lastly add all the deep fried dry fruits and other ingredients and toss it well.
  8. Cool it well and store it in an airtight container.
