·  Red Chillies dried 1-2
·  Salt & Sugar to taste

·  Prepare the tadka with the oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida, turmeric & green chillies.
·  Now add the peanuts and dhalia and stir till golden color.
·  Add the finely chopped onions, chillies, half of coriander and lemon juice. Cook till soft.
·  When this is completely cooled, add the puffed rice and mix well so that the mixture adheres nicely to all the puffed rice grains.
·  Now transfer this to a heavy bottomed pan and on medium heat stir the mixture gently, till the grains become crispy.
·  do not do it in high flame - If you do this on high heat the grains shrink and will  not taste good.
·  Remove from heat. Sprinkle grated coconut and chopped coriander. serve this by topping with fine Shev or mirchi bajji ... it tastes yummy with bajji
