Take 2 to 3 tbsp oil in a wok and let it heat a little. When the oil is hot, add peanuts into it and stir constantly until you see slight change in color and crispy. Take out the roasted peanuts in a separate bowl as well. 

Now add coconut to the same wok and saute until there is little change and then transfer it in the same bowl as well. 

Add finely chopped green chilies and curry leaves in the rest of the oil and saute for a while. Also add turmeric powder, raisins and continue to saute. Then add poha, coconut, peanuts, salt and powdered sugar in the roasted spices and mix everything really well. Keep the flame low and keep stirring for 2 minutes. Roasted poha namkeen is now ready, turn off the flame. 

Transfer the poha namkeen in a bowl and  let it cool down completely. After this, store it in an air tight container and relish eating for up to 2 to 3 months.
