Masala Pori/Puffed Rice

     If anyone ask me to award for the best and non-junky snack. I will defenitely suggest this. I should say this is one of THE BEST Healthy, tasty, crispy, cheap and non-fatty snack. This is our traditional, home town based snacker which my grand ma use to prepare this often and even my mom will have this instock all time. During my childhood, if we are planning for a long trip, my mom will start preparing this, to munch during our bored journey time. One day, we went to temple and saw people selling this in huge numbers, suddenly thought why i shouldnot give a try so bought it immediately and prepared and even tasted and now its for your viewssssssssssssssssss................


ALL YOU NEED:
Puffed Rice 2 cups
Red Chilly Powder 1 spoon
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Pepper Powder 1/2 spoon
Curry Leaf 4 Twigs
Urad Dhall 2 spoons
Garlic 8 Nos.
Salt Pinch
Oil 2 spoons


METHOD:
     Take a wide frying pan. Heat 2 spoons of oil, add mustard, once it gets splutters add urad dhall. Wait until it turns golden brown. Take garlic cloves and do a whip in a mixer grinder. Add it into the oil along with curry leaf. Once garlic turns yellow brown, add the puffed rice, add in all powders and required salt. Do a hard stir with the garlic mixture for a while. That's it... Its ready to munch :) Allow it to cool down for a while, to store it in air tight container. Be careful it should not lose its crispyness.

Note: You can substitute chilly powder with red chilly, if ur serving it to kids.
