Corn flakes Chivda

Diwali is just round the corner. Here i am with a very easy chivda or mixture recipe using corn flakes. I used kellogs brand, plain cornflakes. One doesn't have to deep fry the corn flakes for this chivda. It is very easy and breezy recipe that can be done in no time.

I am on call for this weekend so didn't have the luxury to have a lot of time to prepare sweets and snacks.
