Last weekend I bought a bag full of puffed rice from grocery store. I wanted to use as much as possible and finish it otherwise it will loose its crunch very soon and also if it gets old, a strange smell comes out of it. I am not the one who wants to just throw things away. Thats a big reason I buy in lesser quantities. This time the quantity was more but the price was less that was the main thing which tempted me very much. Every time when my husband comes from office he wants something very light in snacks. This time i have made this puffed rice masala. Very easy to make and very tasty to eat with cup of tea..
1/2 kg puffed rice
1 cup peanut, 1 cup roasted gram
1 full garlic cloves finely chopped
Curry leaves, a few
5 to 6 dry red chillies
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
3 tbsp oil
In a large deep frying pan, dry roast the puffed rice for few minutes and keep it aside. Then in the same pan add oil, when the oil is hot add curry leafs, red chillies, peanuts, roasted gram and chopped garlic and fry for 5 to 6 minutes in a low flame. Now add the turmeric and salt and fry for another 1 to 2 minutes. then allow it to cool. Finally add the puffed rice to it and mix it well.
