Poonthi mixture is a snack that is popular in South India. It is made using a combination of poonthi (puffed rice), aval (flattened rice), gram flour, vegetable oil, chili powder, and salt.
To make Poonthi mixture, first, the poonthi and aval are roasted until crispy. Then, gram flour is added to the mixture and sautéed with vegetable oil until it turns golden brown. Finally, chili powder and salt are added to the mixture to give it a spicy and savory flavor.
The end result is a crispy and crunchy snack that is perfect to munch on anytime. It is often served as a tea-time snack or as an accompaniment to drinks.
