Spicy puffed rice | masala kurmura|Murmura chat|Kara Pori

Masala kurmura or Spicy Puffed Rice which is usually taken with tea and also most favorite street food is my all time favourite .i like to munch it whenever i am hungry

puffed rice is called Pori in tamil or Murmura in hindi,mamra in gujrati & kurmura in marathi.

 Puffed Rice  is airy and light .Being a part of bhel-puri which is a popular street food,murmura is also offered as prasad in temples.

We make a lot of dishes with this puffed rice such as kurmura chivda,dry bhel,kurmura ladu, Bhelpuri, Jhal Muri, etc.

 Today I have  a simple snack  low in calories which is my mausis recipe made from puffed rice which will satisfy your hunger pangs .she used to give me to munch in office.

This can be made using long varirty kurmura or round bhadang variety .

You can say this is an easy version of murmura chivda/kurmura chiwada
