Last whole week i was busy as my Parents are here with me and i didn't even find time to post anything.But today somehow I made myself free to blog.Its so wonderful to have parents with us and show them around and to be with them the whole time. My mom is a perfect cook and i hope everybody agree that all mom's are great cook. I will try to learn some new dishes from my mom and post them here.This time i am posting one snack which my mom has prepared but I do it the same was as I learnt it from her.Its called "Chuda" a snack made with Flattened rice with a peanut tempering. Its one of the popular snack in South India.

4-5 curry leaves
1 tbsp Roasted Channa Dal/Dalia
2-3 Dry Red chillies

Put the oil in a pan and keep it on medium heat.Add mustard seeds, once they crackle add peanut, cashew nut and fry till golden brown and then add curry leaves, turmeric,red chillies and switch off the flame.Now add Dalia,flatten rice,salt 'n' sugar and mix well.Cool it and serve or store it in an air-tight container.
