6th day of Blog Chatters A2Z Challenge and it also happens to be the start of holy Navratri period of 9 days. Navrati, falling in the month of March/April, marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year. This festival is known as Ugadi in South India. As most of the people in different parts of India would be fasting so I have come up with a recipe for fasts.

And this recipe is Farali Chivda which means a snack that can be eaten during fasts. This chivda is a mix of various things like sago, nuts, potato julienne, curry leaves and some rock salt. It is a crunchy munchy snack which once you start eating , becomes difficult to take your hands off from it. A very light and delicious snack. And the best thing is that you can make it before Navratri or other fasts and enjoy during fasts. It remains good easily for 10 to 15 days but will it be there till then?

What did you say? What happened to my theme, kids favourite recipes’ for the challenge? Have I forgotten or taken a break or can’t think of kids recipes from alphabet F?

So, my answer is, you please try this and you will find that it is kids who are enjoying it the most. There is no chillies in this Chivda, on the contrary it is slightly on the sweeter side. Plus addition of cashews, almonds and peanuts makes it super yummy.

Normally, thius chivda is made by deep frying various ingredients and then mixing everything with salt. But mine is a healthy version as always. I have made this in airfryer which means everything is roasted/air fried without oil and then while mixing, just 1 tsp oil is added so that salt sticks to it. Thus, totally a healthy mixture/chivda.

In this Chivda, my main ingredient is Sago Pearls (Sabudana). Sago Pearls come in various sizes and for making this chivda we need the one which is large in size, like the one shown in the pic below. This one is ideal for frying. When fried, it pops up, becomes opaque white in colour and is crunchy to bite. But, frying makes it too oily as it absorbs lot of oil.

Once I tried this in air fryer and the results were awesome. Since then, every now-n- then I roast it in air fryer in the morning itself as my son Siddharth loves taking these to his work place for munching in the late afternoon. Within 10 minutes I get perfect puffed up sago and that too oil free. Yes, he loves eating it without fasts too.

For making this Farali chivda there is no set ratio of ingredients nor the ingredients are fixed. You add them as per your liking. What is important is the method. So, let’s see the method. .

  2. All the ingredients, except potatoes, take 5 to 6 minutes to get roasted. 
  3. Set the airfryer temperature to 200 degrees C for good and quick results.
