How to Make Cornflakes Namkeen

Cornflakes Namkeen, 15-Minute Recipe

Recently I went to Karachi Bakery and saw this namkeen. I have this habit of wandering around whenever I go to bakeries or food store. And woah! this Cornflakes namkeen attracted my attention. I was going to buy but later thought, let’s try this at home. I examined the Cornflakes namkeen pack like a pro ๐Ÿ˜‰ … well it seemed easy and there I go, I memorised what all ingredients I could see in it and bingo! I made it at home and it was tasty, easy and such a quick and healthy snack. You can have this snack with evening chai!

I didn’t deep fried the cornflakes. I had used Kellogg’s Cornflakes, the plain one, you can take any other plain and golden cornflakes; no other flavour. The time taken to make the cornflakes namkeen for this recipe is just 10-15 minutes. I made it faster as I keep all the ingredients handy before making anything. So, you can apply this trick too. Collect all the ingredients at one place and it’ll be a no-mess affair.
