Mixture is a familiar spicy snack to many, and was discovered by the British in the days of the Empire. It has many varities wich are served in different names across India.
It has become an incredibly popular snack since it was introduced to Britain and it is now consumed all over the world. However, it is known by different names and is only called Bombay mix in Britain. It is known as chevda in India, and was first, created to be prepared at home and consumed during festivals between meals.
Although most people who consume this delicious snack in India do so from a packet purchased from a local shop, traditionally it is made by hand. It is a time consuming process and very labor intensive. The thick mixture of 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, and although it can often be found in health food shops, the frying process does mean it isn’t necessarily a healthy option. The time taken to prepare the snack is always worth it, however, as the finished result is delicious and a very different experience to the shop brought variety.
