Madras Mixture | Spicy Mixture | Easy Diwali Snack Recipe

 I love to watch chef Venkatesh Bhut's cooking show in Vijay tv as the method involved and the way he narrates make us feel the simplicity of the recipe.I remember him making this mixture in an episode some very long back.In it he mentioned make this snack when you get time as its so simple, pocket-friendly and make a great snack, yes its all really true.When I did it I got a big bottle full and made a great snack for the evening. Since Diwali is fast nearing and if you still have no clue what snack to make for disturbing do try this simple mixture.
