MASALA PUFFED RICE/PORI


Masala pori is a perfect tea time snack. Having masala pori with a cup of coffee will be really delicious. This is a simple recipe that fills up and still makes us feel light even if we have overeaten. Usually, peanuts and puffed channa dal is added to the masala pori but I wanted to have a low-calorie version, hence didn’t added that, however, adding both peanuts and puffed channa dal will make it to taste more yummy. It can be prepared in large amounts and stored in an airtight container. Whenever we go for get-togethers or outing, I usually prepare this to avoid myself from eating fast-food items.

INGREDIENTS:

Puffed Rice – 1 litre

Crushed garlic flakes – 15

Curry leaves – few

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Chilly powder – 1/2 tsp (add more if you want it more spicy)

Powdered asafoetida – 1/2 tsp

Salt – to taste

Oil – 2 tsp

METHOD:

· Heat oil in a pan, add garlic flakes and curry leaves, once they have become brown, add turmeric powder, chilly powder, and asafoetida.
· Then add the puffed rice and salt, mix well and keep in flame for a minute or less than that if the volume is small, otherwise it will be overburnt.
· Switch of the stove. Crispy masala pori is now ready. Transfer the contents in an airtight container to maintain the crispiness.
