Poha chivda recipe(How to make thin poha chivda)

This chivda is made on all festivals in our house,we make two types,one is the yellow masala and the other green.I do make and store this for a quick snack for kids or if you have guest over,lets see what goes in making this


First roast the poha on low flame without stirring too much,as it will break into powder.Take 4 to 5 onions and slice it thin and long and let it dry under the fan.This one is green Masala chivda, as I have not used red chilli powder or coriander powder in it only green chili for taste.
