Poha Mixture -- Atukula Mixture -- How to make Andhra Style Poha Mixture

Poha Mixture
Poha mixture or Chivda mixture is made in different styles in different regions. We can add any type of nuts to it. It is very easy recipe and kids also love it very much. Serve it with hot piping tea or can have a fistful of it anytime.  We have two types of poha or flattened rice; one is thick and another one is thin. We can use both of them for making mixture. We use thick one only for making upma and pulihora. Thin one is used in dosa batter and to make mixture. For this dish I used thick one.
