Mixture || Guest post by Sowmya Suresh

 Today I am posting traditional mixture recipe, can be made under 30 mins with all available ingredients at home. Mixture / namkeens / savouries what ever we say it's must have for teatime munching. I feel these days due to availability of all such savouries in market, we find it's easy to buy than made. but we really don't know what artificial agents they use for more shelf life, so it's better to take out some time to prepare these stuff at home.

All viewers are welcome to send me such recipes along with recipe and food picture to gmail id prathima.shivraj1@gmail.com, let's jump to recipe with out wasting time.
