I made this cornflakes when i made my poha chiwda. Both of them where a hit and tasted yum. Loved the sweet, salty and spicy taste they give..It tasted so crunchy and was great with a cup of chai.
I loved lots of nuts in my mixture so i added a good amount of them..You can add whatever you feel like, that is the beauty about mixture. You can throw anything in them it will taste yum..
I hope you will love this and let me know how it turned out for you..
