Oats Chivda Namkeen

Oats Chivda Namkeen is a very healthy and quick munching evening snack which can be made and stored in an airtight container for later use. There is no specific ratio or rule of using oats and poha, this can also be made using oats + cornflakes or oats + puffed rice. The only idea is to get the crunch that oats do not give to this mixture. Enjoy the snack time 😊
