Farali Chivda For Fasts

6th day of Blog Chatters A2Z Challenge and it also happens to be the start of the 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.

 

Make-Ahead Snack For Fasting

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?

 

Chivda For Kids

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 the addition of cashews, almonds, and peanuts makes it super yummy.

Normally, this 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 air fryer 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.

 

Sago In 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.

Chivda In Air Fryer

Once I tried this in my Phillips air fryer and the results were awesome. Since then, every now-n- then I roast it in the air fryer in the morning itself as my son Siddharth loves taking these to his workplace 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.
