Microwave Chivda

I found this recipe in Tarladalal's website. It was so easy and less messy :-)
I didnt follow the recipe exactly.

Ingredients :

Nylon thin poha - 2 cups
Green chillies - 3 or 4 finely chopped
Oil - 2,3 spoons
mustard seeds
a pinch of turmeric powder
salt to taste
roasted peanuts ( i used unsalted) - a handful

Microwave the poha for 2 minutes. In a non stick pan heat some oil. Pop mustard seeds and jeera. Add hing and green chillies and fry them. Add turmeric powder and keep it in the heat for sometime. Then add it to the poha. Add salt and 2 more spoons of oil. Add the peanuts and mix it well. Microwave for another 2 minutes. Chivda is ready and it was really crunchy and yum!
You can add curry leaves, dalia and roated cashews also. I didnt have them when i made it.
I am going to send this for Pallavi's Sunday Snacks - Fix It
