Curry Chex Mix

Yikes! I guess it has been almost three weeks since my last post. Easter was lovely but it came and went in a blink – my in-laws were here for a quick visit then. We made broiled salmon (with Tony Chachere’s More Spice Seasoning…yum!) and whole wheat couscous with asparagus and red pepper…double yum!), as well as Malaysian Laksa (sorry folks, no photos or recipes as I decided to take a short, much-needed break). I will do my best to take some photos the next time I make them. :D

I have to say that time has been quite lacking lately on my end, and I’ve resorted to making only things that are fast and easy to put together. Here’s a delicious curry-flavored snack for instance, so easy to make and full of bold, fiery flavor…perfect to keep you warm on a cool spring day and especially awesome when you are in a super spicy mood. Enjoy!

1 cup Corn Chex cereal
1 cup Rice Chex cereal
1 cup Wheat Chex cereal
1 cup salted roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon curry powder
¾ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon red pepper sauce
 

In a large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and peanuts; set aside. In a small bowl, combine oil and all the seasonings, and microwave uncovered on high for 20 seconds or until fragrant. Then, pour over cereal mixture and stir until evenly coated. Microwave cereal mixture uncovered on high for 4 minutes, stirring thoroughly every minute for the first 3 minutes, and every 30 seconds for the last minute. Spread on baking sheet or plate lined with paper towels and cool. Store in an airtight container.

      Amelia,

      They are actually more like a mixture of dry cereals and I made them curry flavor because honestly, I miss curry flavor Twisties, LOL. They didn’t taste like Twisties…maybe one of these days I’ll get close (I’m such a dreamer, I know). However, I love the curry flavor keropok idea! :D Will keep that in mind if I ever venture to make my own keropok.

    This is so cool, Chris. Makes a bowl of boring looking cereals look real flashy. Did I just hear *crunch*? LOL! Can I have some? Bet it was addictive :-)

      Isadora,

      Yes, you definitely can have some. :D I actually thought it was a tad too spicy but hubby loves it super spicy…somedays I wonder who’s the M’sian here, LOL.
