Here is a another recipe for our all time favorite snack: Chivda. This time I am sharing a recipe for Chivda made with pre-roasted pohe. This is available in Indian stores. It has no seasoning or spices in it and is only roasted. I often purchase this for munching as is but I also love to make Chivda with it. The end product is very crunchy and highly addictive.

I was browsing my blog the other morning and realized that I have not posted candy or fudge recipes here in quite a while!! Given that they are my favorite treats to make and share I lost no time in making a batch to photograph and share. Today's recipe is really simple. Just a few ingredients from your pantry and you are set.

The day after I made my second batch of Mathris, I decided I must make some Meethi Mathris (Sweet Mathris) too this year! Deep fried dough soaked in fragrant sugar syrup. Whats not to like? These Mathris turned out to be perfectly crunchy, sweet, and delicious. We enjoyed them with steaming hot cups of tea!!

Nothing says celebration in the North of India like Mathris. A staple of weddings, get-togethers, and festivals alike Mathris are a treat! In India, making Mathri was a bi-annual affair. Come Diwali or Holi, mounds of salty dough made with maida and ghee would be shaped into discs and deep fried to a crisp. For the kids, it meant enjoying hot crispy Mathris straight out of the fryer and then the cooled down flaky ones which would be stored in air sealed glass containers for days to come.
