This is my contribution to "Powerless Cooking" by Easycrafts. My entry did not use any kind of electric appliances ... not even my stove, as it uses electric lighter.

  • Puffed Rice - 1 cup
  • Beetroot - 1 (small)
  • Carrot - 1
  • Onion - 1 (small)
  • Corriander Leaves - 1/4 cup chopped
  • Chat masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Amchur Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder - a pinch
  • Peanuts (Roasted) - 1/2 cup
  • Coconut oil - 1 tbsp

How to make it:

Shred carrot and beetroot using a shredder. Chop onions very finely. In a bowl, add the shredded carrot, beetroot, 3/4 part of the onions, 1/2 of corriander leaves, peanuts, amchur powder, chilli powder, chat masala powder, coconut oil and salt and mix it together. Add the puffed rice to it and mix well. Garnish with more onions and corriander leaves and serve. I had some oma podi, i already made and added that on top for extra crunchy - munchy taste. Enjoy your evening snack!
