Masala Pori / Masala Puffed Rice

As I already mentioned, I bought a bag full of puffed rice from Indian store. I want to use as much as possible and finish it because 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. But this big bad of puffed rice.. My god! So friend, there are going to be many dishes with my puffed rice ;-) Usually my husband takes as afternoon nap on weekends. So everytime when he gets up from the nap he wants something nice as a light snack. This time I made this masala pori. We loved it. Its very simple to make and its crunchy and tasty and great to have with a cup of hot tea. 


Puffed rice - 3 cups
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp ( according to spice level)
Curry leaves - 6-8 leaves
Roasted Peanuts - 1/2 cup broken into half
Asafoetida - a pinch


Heat oil in a pan. When it is hot enough add curry leaves, asafoetida, red chilli powder, turmeric. 

Add the puffed rice immediately and give it a good mix till the chilli powder and turmeric mixes well with the puffed rice. 

Add salt, and roasted peanuts and fry for about 2 mins till the puffed rice becomes crunchy.

Serve it with hot tea.
