Have a look


you can reduce quantity of puffed rice or absolutely fine if you want to skip adding puffed rice.
make sure your gas is off while adding red chili powder.  otherwise your red chili powder will burn and you will get a burned chili flavor and also chili powder becomes black. 
you can adjust spices according to your choice and taste 
some people adding roasted chana into this  chivda but i love this without it so i made this way, its absolutely fine if you want to add roasted chana 
also you can add some cashews and almonds with peanuts , adding dry fruits also totally up on your choice , i love this  chivda without any dryfruits and extra masala.
