As I had mentioned in the Fried version of oats chiwda, that I will be sharing another version of oats chiwda. Hence this recipe post. This is a healthier version of oats chivda.

This oats chivda can be eaten as a light snack or a quick snack. You can even pack the chivda in tiffin box or serve as Diwali savory snack. Also oats don’t double up in size as poha, hence the dry fruits used are less in quantity. If you want you can add more dry fruits.

I have used just one cup of oats but You can double or triple up the recipe. more quantities of this chivda should last for a month in an air-tight container. Best part is you can eat them guilt free. People of various age groups can enjoy this snack 🙂

While making this oats chivda just roast the oats on a low flame or a low heat. Else the oats may get too golden or brown. We don’t want oats to be much browned, just a tinge of brown is enough. Oil is only used for frying nuts and spices.

Few more Diwali dry snacks recipes are:
