Madras Mixture recipe - South Indian Style Madras Mixture recipe - Diwali snack recipe - Kids friendly recipe

My kids and my husband love Mixture. I love to have mixture with rasam rice. I always thought that making Mixture at home is a really complicated task. Regardless I wanted to try making this for Diwali. After doing it I realized that this is one of the easiest recipe and if you are planning for distribution to your friends and family this is one of the easiest snack.
