Chatpata Cereal Chevda – Spicy Cereal mix

Chatpata Cereal Mix – Spicy Cereal Mix – serves 3-4

I got this idea of recipe from a friend who would add the cereals and add salt & pepper for her spice-loving Indian tongue :):):):)



1. Mixed breakfast Cereals – 1/2 cup corn flakes, 1/2 cup cheerios, 1/2 cup Puffed Wheat, 1/2 cup organic Rice Crunch-ems

2. 3 teaspoon oil

3. Black mustard seeds

4. 1 teaspoon ajwain (carom seeds) – crushed between palms

5. Pinch of asaefotida (hing)

6. ½ teaspoon salt or per taste

7. ¾ teaspoon red chilli powder (adjust to taste for less or more hot for kids)

8. 1 cup whisked low-fat Yogurt


  1. Add the cereals in a bowl with salt and red chilli powder. Mix well.

TIP: the cereals do not need to be cooked for longer so adding salt & chilli prior will help the cereals absorb the taste better when heated for few minutes in next step.

2. Whisk yogurt in a separate bowl and keep aside

3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a pan. When hot enough – add a mustard seed, if it splutters the oild is ready – then add the mustard seeds and let them splutter. When stopped sizzling pour the oil over whisked yogurt, mix well and keep aside.

4. Heat 2 teaspoon oil in the same pan. When hot enough (1 ½ minute on medium-high)– add crushed ajwain and hing and add the cereal mix. Stir well. Cook for 1 ½ minute constantly stirring to avoid burning/sticking at the bottom of the pan.

5. Divide the yogurt equally into serving bowls and add cereal mix equally to each bowl of yogurt. Stir well and enjoy the healthy breakfast – the Indian style – this is rich in fiber and other  nutrients plus you can enjoy the spicy flavor too!!!!!!!


  1. Any cereals of your choice (less or no sugar added) can be used for this recipe.
  2. The yogurt mix can be avoided if having as a crunchy snack any time of the day or as late-night snack!!!!
