Crunchy Crispy Churmuri

I bought a big packet of puffed rice from Indian store last evening. I like puffed rice in varied savory forms. I have had this churmuri in Bangalore, India. My husband is from Bangalore and he introduced me to this snack. I loved it. It was crunchy, spicy, salty, etc etc.. So it became my favorite from then. Whenever we visit India, we make sure we eat this churmuri. Only after having it atleast once, my heart will come back to US peacefully. This time when I bought this packet of puffed rice, the immediate snack from my husband and me was churmuri. So here comes my version of churmuri.


Puffed Rice - 3 cups (Rice cooker cup measurement)
Carrot - 1/2 cup grated
Tomato - 1/2 chopped finely
Onion - 1/2 chopped finely
Cucumber - 1/2 chopped finely
Cilantro - 1 Tbsps chopped
Salt - to taste
Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsps
Roasted peanuts - 1/4 cup broken into halves
Lime Juice - 1 tbsps
Sev - 2 tbsps for garnish


In a dry pan, dry roast puffed rice for about 3 mins. This will help puffed rice stay crisp for long time.

In another pan, roast groundnuts in a tsps oil until golden brown.

In a bowl, mix onion, tomato, cucumber, carrot, cilantro, salt, red chilli powder and mix well.

Add ground nuts and Lime juice and mix well.

Just before serving add puffed rice and mixx well and serve immediately with hot tea or coffee.

Crunchy crispy churmuri is ready in minutes.
