Those days, my mom used to start making Diwali snacks a week ahead and make so much in quantity. She will be storing all the snacks in tins and big containers (thooku vaali) and give everything little by little in evening time for the whole family. I have never seen her buying snacks or sweets from shops, everything strictly home made.
Though mixture is a mixture, I like to pick and eat the ingredients in it separately. Its fun for me. I love the sweet diamond maida biscuits in it very much. But sadly I have not tried making it so far at home, so have not added in this recipe. In spite of this spicy mixture, I love sweet mixture very very much. The one which looks also similar to this mixture, but sweet. Even in this south Indian mixture recipe, my special ingredient is a bit of sugar, which I add lastly and toss.
The classic combo – mixture, sweet and filter coffee. And that boondi ladoo is my next post 🙂
