Whether you are enjoying a street-side vada pav, having a cup of chai on a normal evening, or indulging in a plateful of pakoda during the raining season – we, Indians, have a penchant for snacking. Spicy, tangy, and crispy, all in one swallow – we bring you the most show-stopping snacks -- bursting with punchy flavours of curry leaves, chillies, melon seeds, dry fruits, and all other ingredients that make a happy Indian snack called mixture.
Mixture is one of the most favourite crispy snacks of India, with different variations in different states. The most common name of all is Bombay mix, which was discovered on the west coast of Mumbai by the British, when they were ruling our country. That’s how it was named Bombay mix. Since then, it has become an incredible popular snack not only in India, but has spread to the UK and US as well. In America, it is more famous as Punjabi mix, and in India, we called it chivda -- famous as a popular Indian evening snack. In Bangladesh, it is known as chanachur and as chuda in Bombay. The Australians have given it the name bhujia mix, and in Sri Lanka, it is simply called mixture and is equally loved in all the places.
The different names have a similar recipe. But in India, all other varieties include ingredients such as dry fruits -- while these condiments are never used in mixtures served at restaurants in Britain. There’s a different version of Bombay mix called gathia mix, or sometimes known as Gujarati mix, which happens to be a lot spicier and contains only crunchy mix, peanuts, and spices.
The basic ingredients that go into making mixtures are always dried and include fried lentils, peanuts, cashews, gram-flour noodles, corn, curry leaves, vegetable oil (vanaspati ghee), chickpeas, flaked rice, and fried onion. The seasoning is very pungent and strong; it is made from combining ground cumin, mustard seeds, ground coriander, turmeric, chilli powder, and salt. A traditional mixture recipe may tend to be different in using flattened rice or chickpea-flour noodles (sev) or puffed rice. Even the noodles may have variations in size and shape – some prefer the effect of using thick noodles, while others prefer their thinner version.
The making of mixture is a time-consuming process and labour-intensive. The noodles are formed using a perforated brass utensil called seviya. The thick mixture of chickpea flour, oil, spices, and water is passed through the seviya into vats of hot oil to fry. This gives the snack its famous crunchy texture. The time taken to prepare the snack is worth it -- as the finished result always turns out to be delicious and renders a different experience as compared to the shop-bought variety. In India, it is sometimes consumed as part of a meal or as a standalone snack, though, it is usually consumed with the hands.
Mixture is equally famous in other countries, and with the advent of online marketing, it has become even more possible to easily sweep out the snacks outside borders.
