Cornflakes Mixture | Corn Flakes Chivda | Makai Chivda

Cornflakes Chivda or Corn Flakes Mixture is a delicious healthy snack that is quite easy to prepare.  Generally this is made with plain corn flakes (not the cereal version like Kellogs that is available in stores) and deep fried in oil.  I have used the ready-to-eat cereal cornflakes where I do not have to deep fry them.  So it does not require too much oil and if you are looking for a healthy snack for your kids, you can try this out.

Cornflakes mixture is very easy to prepare compared to the traditional South Indian mixture.
