Madras Mixture | Tamilnadu Mixture recipe

Madras mixture / Tamilnadu Mixture, a delicious South Indian savoury snack. As the name suggests itself, it has a mixture of various South Indian snacks put together ! Hence, it doesn't have any "fixed" recipe, every sweet stall/household has its own mixture recipe. 

In general, the mixture has kara boondi, omapodi, roasted aval/poha, roasted peanuts and curry leaves. In addition to that, sweet diamond cuts, seval , ribbon pakoda, kara sev, broken pieces of murukku and chips  and cashews are also added.  

In today's post, i'm sharing the basic mixture recipe using kara boondi and omapodi/plain sev as main ingredients. As i have already said, there is no defined recipe for making the mixture, you can add more or less  ingredients as per your liking. 

What's the use of making homemade mixture without playing around with the ingredients as per your liking, right? 
As i have already shared the recipe for omapodi and kara boondi in separate posts, here i haven't shared the detailed recipe, so please look into the respective posts for those recipes. Before moving into the recipe, here are some beginners tips.
  • I would highly recommend adding the curry leaves, it gives such a nice aroma to the mixture.
  • Fry the aval/poha at last, it makes the oil cloudy.
  • You can use both skinned/un-skinned peanuts for the mixture. Both taste equally good.
  • If you're making it for the first time, i would recommend to start off with a smaller portion. So that you can make it easily without overwhelming yourself.
That's it, Now let's check out the Mixture recipe.
