Puffed Rice Mixture is a quick win - easy to make, yet tasty. Less oil, yet crunchy.
Recipe type: Mixture
Cuisine: Indian
  • Puffed Rice / Pori - 2 cups
  • Peanuts - ¼ cup
  • Fried gram(Pottukadalai) - ¼ cup
  • Curry leaves - 1 spring
  • Turmeric powder - ¼ tsp
  • Coriander powder - ¼ tsp
  • Sambar Powder - ⅛ tsp
  • Hing - a generous pinch
  • Coconut Oil - 1 tsp + ¼ tsp
  • Salt - as needed
  1. Add oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot, keep the stove in low heat and add turmeric powder, sambar powder, coriander powder, hing, salt and chat masala
  2. Add puffed rice and saute for 2 mins. Add peanuts, fried gram and curry leaves and fry till peanuts and fried gram became golden brown
  3. The pori should get well coated with the spice powders. Store in an air tight jar and enjoy :)
1.You can add chilli powder if you want pori to be spicy
2.Can add peanuts and fried gram after tempering but I have a fear they might be overcooked!
