Crispy Aval/Poha Snack

This is a very easy and delicious snack that can be made in a matter of few minutes and tastes great when served with tea/coffee.

Ingredients
Thick Aval/Poha - 1 cup
Unsalted Plain Peanuts - 2 tablespoons
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Chilli powder - 3/4 teaspoon
Oil - enough for deep frying
Salt to taste

Directions
In a heavy bottomed vessel, heat the oil for deep frying.
Use a wired mesh strainer, for deep frying the aval. It is very handy and quick. Just place about 2 tablespoons of aval in the strainer and lower it into the hot oil. It takes about five seconds for the aval to turn crisp. Immediately remove the strainer from the oil and transfer the aval to paper towels.
Note: The oil should be very hot while doing this. Otherwise the aval turns soggy and absorbs a lot of oil.
If you dont have the strainer, it could be deep fried as usual. But take care the aval does not get burnt.
In a little bit of oil, fry the curry leaves and peanuts.
In a box, combine add the aval, peanuts, curry leaves, salt, turmeric powder and chilli powder. Put on the box lid and give it a good shake.

Crispy aval/poha snack is ready to munch on!!
