Spiced Puffed rice ~ Miryakana Charmuro

There’s nothing worse than finding your snack corner empty when you are watching a movie or just feel like munching on something.I usually stock packets of Act2 ready to make popcorn,but even that didn’t come to our rescue when we badly felt like snacking on a Sunday evening!!I was making frequent trips to the kitchen hoping to find something…something which I might have missed spotting.I saw a packet of Charmuro[puffed rice] and thought of making something with it.The thought of making a chat or snack-mix was out of question[or rather,I was lazy!].

I strongly agree that the thought of the blog and events that are going on have the power to wipe out the laziness in me!!All I had to do was search and here I am with a wonderful bowl of snack,ready to munch,anyone??

Spiced Puffed rice ~ Miryakana Charmuro[Adapted from Shilpa of Aayisrecipes]


Puffed rice – 3-4 cups
Haldi – a pinch
Pepper[powder]– ½ tsp
Ghee – 1 tsp
Salt to taste


In a kadai,on low flame add ghee,haldi,pepper and salt[take care not to burn it].
Fry for a few minutes till everything gets mixed.
Add the puffed rice and mix well.
Keep on low flame and stir in between till the puffed rice become crisp and the masala gets coated evenly.

Add a handful of roasted peanuts for that extra crunch[optional].
Let it cool to room temperature-store in an airtight container.

Sending this across to Ashwini who is hosting this month's MBP-Snacks and Savouries,an event originally started by Coffee of Spice Cafe.

Also to Divya who is hosting this month's Think Spice..Think Pepper,an event started by Sunita of Sunita's World.
