In rural areas like my hometown, people won't prefer buying the ready food like snacks from outside. Instead, they will enjoy the home made snacks like Chips with seasonally available vegetables like raw banana, jackfruit, breadfruit, sweet potatoes, etc. Sometimes, they will prepare snacks using the flattened rice and puffed rice. Here is my version of Churumuri using the puffed rice which you can enjoy with a cup of hot coffee or tea.
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Puffed rice - 1 plate
Groundnut - 1/2 cup
Split pea / Putani - 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon
Garlic crushed - 1 spoon ( you can use asafoetida alternatively)
Finely chopped green chilli - 1
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon
Red chilli powder - 1/2 spoon (adjust as per your preference)
Chopped curry leaves
Oil 4 - 5 spoon
Salt - as per taste
Amchur powder - a big pinch
Powdered sugar- 1/2 spoon
Take a heavy bottom pan, heat the puffed rice on small / medium flame for 5 minutes or till it becomes crispy. Transfer the puffed rice to some other vessel.
In the same pan, heat the oil and add groundnut, split peas and mustard seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add chopped green chillies and fry for a while.
Add red chilli powder, turmeric, curry leaves and crushed garlic. Fry the garlic nicely and switch off the flame.
Add salt and sugar to the seasoning and mix well.
Finally, add the puffed rice and mix it thoroughly. I prefer mixing it with hands instead of spatula.
Check the taste and add salt or sugar, if required.
Enjoy the Puffed rice churumuri with a cup of hot tea!
