Savory Mixer

#Mixer - #SavoryMixer : I have made mixer at home long back for a diwali. After that I Haven't done at all. I like its asafoetida aroma and crispy fried curry leaves flavor. The mixer available here is seasoned with chat masala. But I wanted to have our mixer with traditional flavor.

So I decided to make it at home and made it. I prepared omapodi and karaboondhi using 1/2 cup of gram flour each. Then fried corn fryums available in the market. Only thing missing was fried gram. But compensated it with lot of peanuts. Seasoned all with red chilly powder, fried curry leaves, asafoetida powder and salt. Ah!.. tasty crunchy mm.. mixer ready. I got nearly three cups of mixer.
Here comes the recipe.
