Rice cereal mixture

Rice cereal mixture is a crispy and spicy snack made with rice cereal and nuts. Best evening tea time snack and very simple to make recipe. Also it is a healthy choice as it is just pan fried with little oil.

Notes:

  • I used roasted peanuts here. If you have raw peanuts, add it as the first thing before adding cashew nuts.
  • Increase or decrease the red chilli powder as per your spice level.
  • Do not burn rice cereal by over frying.
