Spicy Mixture with detailed photo and video is available here. basically a crispy evening snack, is referred as Spicy madras mixture. in south india, it is typically prepared during festival like diwali. Preparing Mixture at home requires little patience as it involves making 5-7 items and combining everything to form spicy Mixture. Additionally, Few recommendations to make it perfect and crispy south indian mixture recipe. firstly, while preparing the spicy boondi, the consistency is very critical. the batter has to be neither thin or watery, nor thick and has to be in between. Batter should have a flowing Consistency. also the boondi and Kara Sev has to be deep fried in a hot vegetable oil or they would form a lump. secondly, you can reuse the same oil for deep frying all the snacks and can be done one after the other. Also to be noted that once aval/Poha is fried, discard the fried oil as it causes some odour. Sharing the recipe I made for this diwali as below:
