I have already posted Healthy Poha chivda, Corn flakes mixture in Jeyashri's kitchen. Check out our Complete collection of Diwali recipes.
For my readers in Singapore
I have seen this Wheat flakes Chivda in Sri Murugan Stores, in East point mall Simei. I just grabbed the packet from there and then found out it is just like our regular cornflakes made with wheat. Staying in abroad we always miss the celebrations back home in India. But Sri Murugan Stores, Simei brings all the festivity just nearby our home and once you enter there you feel like you are in India. I have shared some pictures from there in Jeyashri's Kitchen Instagram during Ganesh Chaturthi. Also stay tuned to our Instagram page to see more pictures from Sri Murugan stores for Deepavali too. Buy your groceries for this Diwali through Sri Murugan online app, available on iOS and Android.
