Spicy Puffed Rice / Masala Murmura

Spicy puffed rice is a simple and spicy snack that is made by frying puffed rice along with some spices. Additionally you can also add peanuts, almonds, roasted chana dal or dried coconut pieces for extra crunch. But today I will keep this dish simple with just peanuts and curry leaves. Perfect snack to go with tea or coffee or a healthy snack for your kids lunch boxes.

This recipe goes to week 3, day 2 of Blogging Marathon 110 under the theme " Anything you can snack on".


Puffed rice 2 cups
Peanuts 1/4 cup
Curry leaves 15
Oil 1 tbsp
Chili powder 1/2 tbsp
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste


In a deep pan add oil, peanutsand curry leaves.
On medium to low flame fry the peanuts turn nice and crisp.
Now add chili powder, salt and garam masala.
Saute for few seconds and add puffed rice.
Mix everything well so that the spices are nicely coated to the puffed rice.
On medium flame saute till the puffed rice turn crispy.
Turn off flame, let it cool to transfer to air tight container.
Stays good for 3-4 weeks.
