Its genetic , I guess . The love of “ Chiwda” ? Have you ever come across a Maharashtrian , who doesn’t love it? And that too when its made by their Mom?
All of us Marathi folks can boast about the chiwda that our Moms make. And we tend to look for that same taste in other mixtures too. And then finally conclude , there is no match for Mom’s homemade chiwda.
We always have it in stock at home . And its like a ritual , before the previous batch gets over , the next batch should be ready. It’s an awesome snack to munch on anytime of the day. I love it with my evening tea. My daughter likes it topped with some curd( correction : loads of curd!) . And others love it with chopped onions , coriander leaves and a dash of lime.
You can experiment with it , as you like ! And the Mom of the house, my MIL makes the most awesome chiwda. Sharing her very own recipe here. That’s the favorite in my home!
This recipe is a low oil recipe as compared to the completely fried chiwda. Do give it a try and let me know how you like it!
