fried oats chivda recipe

chivda is a savory snack made during diwali festival. in this fried oats chivda recipe, oats and nuts are fried. then spices are tempered and everything is mixed. i prepare one more version of oats chivda recipe which i will share soon. you can serve oats chivda as snack, starter or even as a diwali savory snack.

few more chivda recipes already posted on the blog are:

  1. kara boondi
  2. poha chivda
  3. cornflakes chivda
  4. sabudana chivda
  5. mixture recipe

while making chivda with poha, corn flakes or sabudana, they puff up and double up in size when fried, but oats do not puff up and increase in size. oats have more or less has the same size. so thus less dry fruits need to be added. if you add more dry fruits, there will be more dry fruits and less oats in the chiwda. though you can add more dry fruits if you want. i made a small batch for the blog. but you can easily double the recipe.

fried oats along with the mixture of nuts and spices gives a good flavor and taste. you can add dry fruits of your choice and adjust spices as per your preference.

since i am getting a lot of request on oats recipes. thought of sharing oats chivda. this recipe is from my mom. she makes two kind of chivda – one with poha (flattened rice flakes) and this recipe with oats which i am sharing today.

  1. This is too oily because oats is too small , I tried and felt too oily
    And the gets dirtied because of oats

    • a very fine seive has to be used. then the oil won’t have oats particles. also fry in medium hot oil. if the oil temperature is low, then the oats will become oily. the oil has to be heated hot first. them reduce the flame and then add the oats. this is done so that the oats do not burnt.
