You can add any nuts of your choice, but i always love to add peanuts and cashewnuts to dish out this simple quick-fix munchies. Spiced usually with turmeric powder and chilly powder, you can also add some vegetable to give an another healthy twist to this chivda. However this version of chivda stays long, yes more than a week if they are conserved properly in an air-tightened box. Am running this week’s blogging marathon with How about Elevenses as theme, and this theme is quite an interesting one. Yes this theme calls for light snacks or drinks, one can indulge around 11 o’clock in the morning between the breakfast and lunch. After a healthy vegan millet based biscuits, my today’s post aka murmura chivda goes for this week’s theme.

1/4cup Raw peanuts
