Quick Mix

Mix And Match

Feeding a hungry family is no joke and making Christmas eats for friends and family in vast quantities can become a daunting task. So over the years, I have searched for and created some very simple recipes that could be made quickly, in vast quantities so that there would always be enough to share with others. This is another favourite, made exclusively for Christmas and as delicious as they come.
The Recipe
½ kg beaten rice; ¼ kg each of groundnuts, split chick peas and fried cashewnuts; salt to taste
For Seasoning: 1 ½ tsp chilli powder; 4 tbsp oil; large sprig of curry leaves
Pre heat oven to 275F or 140C. Spread the beaten rice on a baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until crisp. Transfer to large mixing bowl. Repeat with split chick peas and groundnuts. Add all the nuts to the beaten rice and mix well. Add salt to taste.
Heat the oil in a pan and add the curry leaves. Stir fry a minute and add the chilli powder. Remove from heat and pour over the nuts and beaten rice . Cool and store. Ideal for a light, healthy snack at tea time or with drinks.
