Avalakki mixture | Crispy flat rice | Poha chivda

Yum
I made masala puri for dinner (recipe follows) and had no mixture at home to go with it. So instead of venturing out in the rainy Bangalore night to go buy mixture, I decided to just make something by myself at home. I'd never made it before, but the avalakki mixture seemed to be  very simple to make. So I did give it a try and as I had expected, it is very easy to make. It was perfectly crispy and went along well with the masala puri.
