South Indian mixture

Mixture recipe | South Indian mixture recipe – Diwali mixture recipe with full video. A popular snack from South India made using plain sev, kara boondi and fried nuts.

Mixture is a must in most of the South Indian homes, for Diwali. I have very fond memories of my childhood. Amma used to make in big quantity and for the next 2 weeks after diwali, we have this South Mixture with all our meals.

Mixture is always convenient for distribution. Even a small quantity will yield more when it is mixed with other ingredients. I have posted Bombay dal mixture recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen. Also, my kids are a great fan of the Chennai Sri Krishna sweets Mota mixture. I have posted the recipe of Madras mixture in Jeyashris kitchen.

Apart from Murukku, ribbon pakoda and other snack varieties, we make mixture in our home for Deepavali. Deepavali bakshanam will be incomplete without the addition of mixture.

Check out my thattai recipe, Thengai paal murukku and Ribbon pakoda recipe.

Hi Jeyashri, Awesome recipe. I'm gonna follow this to the T. So far, omapodi and karaboondi done.
Just one suggestion: Please link to Omapodi and Karaboondi from the ingredient list. It's easy for people to go to those recipes. Of course, I searched and got the posts. Just saying it's more convenient. Thanks 🙂 – Divya
