MURMURA NAMKEEN / SNACK MADE WITH PUFFED RICE


This is a very simple and quick snack that can be made in just few minutes with the basic ingredients usually available in our kitchens. It really comes out so crunchy and tasty that it vanishes in no time. I just can't stop eating once I start. This is a best option for weight-watchers as it is very light and not deep-fried.

Ingredients:
Murmura .... 100 gms (about 5-6 cups)
Peanuts ....... 1/4 cup
Roasted chana dal ... 1/4 cup
Mustard seeds ... 1 tsp
Dry red chillies ... 2-3 (broken)
Curry leaves ...... 1 sprig
Asafoetida ........ 1 pinch
Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp
Salt ........................ to taste
Oil ........................ 2-3 tbsps



Method:
In a wok or kadai heat the oil. Fry the peanuts.









Remove them in a bowl. If they are roasted then you can use them without frying.









In the same oil add the mustard seeds.









When they crackle add the asafoetida.










Now add the dry red chillies and curry leaves.










Next add the roasted dal.









Stir-fry a little.








Add peanuts, salt and turmeric powder and mix.









Tip in the puffed rice.







Combine everything together stirring for a couple of minutes on medium flame. Your snack is ready. Cool it and store in an air-tight jar.

  2. This is my son's favourite snack and we even have to take some with us on holidays. Sprinkle a few on potatoes or chickeas with freshly cut onions and you can get instant bhel when on holidays.
