Spicy Puffed Rice Snack

I have been munching on this since I was a child. Its absolutely a guilt free tea-time snack for our family. For those who don't know about puffed rice, read here. It is made by heating rice with sand. It is easily available in Indian stores or can be bought from here
puffed rice

Puffed rice (murmura/laiya/ lai/) - 3-4 cups
Peanuts - 1 cup
Red Chillie - 1-2 whole pieces
Mustard seeds (rai) - 1.5 tbsp
Curry leaves - 10-15
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Sugar - just enough to give sweetness
Vegetable oil - 1.5 tbsp

  1. Dry roast peanuts on stove or microwave. Let it cool to room temperature
  2. Heat oil in heavy bottomed pan. Add rai seeds and let it crackle.
  3. Add whole red chillies followed by curry leaves and spices minus sugar.
  4. Immediately add puffed rice & peanuts.  Mix everything thoroughly on low heat.
