  5. Add 1 teaspoon of oil again into the kadai and roast peanuts. Remove from kadai and keep it aside.

  6. Into the same pan, add curry leaves and dried red chilies and when curry leaves start to splutter, turn off heat and add turmeric powder. Immediately pour this on top of the popped jowar dhani.

  7. Into the popped jowar bowl add the  papad broken into smaller pieces. Now add the broken papads, roasted peanuts. With your hands, carefully mix them all together.

  8. If you like, you can also add some sev, roasted fried Bengal gram dal, khara boondi and even puffed rice.
