Dry snacks has always been a part of Indian food Culture. Both North and South part of India have their own treasure of such snacks and make these to be munched during the day or with the tea or coffee.

I remember we had a small wooden almirah with a mesh fitted in the front, popularly called as Jali Ki Almari. The Jali Ki Almari was the treasure trove as it was always filled till brim with home made snacks of all varieties.

In the morning and evenings, my mom used to get a huge plate and filled it with small portions of all the varieties which were stocked inside the Jali Ki Almari and these were served along with tea and toast. Besan ke ladoo, Aate Gond ke ladoo, Namkeen Sev, Namakpare and many more dry snacks came out of this almirah regularly.

This Cornflakes Namkeen | Cornflakes Mixture was also made on a regular basis alternating with Chivda Namkeen or Aloo Ki Bhujia.

Do not confuse the Cornflakes here with the cereal that we eat for breakfast. Their are special Makai Flakes available in the stores which are used to make this Mixture. These flakes can be deep fried and they turn into crunchy and crispy flakes after deep frying.

We enjoyed this delicious Namkeen Mixture with Tetley Green tea which comes in variety of flavours. Experience for yourself how a cup of Tetley green tea can invigorate your system and put you on the path to good health.

Whether made as a part of Diwali or other festivities or just to munch on without any occasion, this cornflake mixture is difficult to resist.
