Murmure (Puffed Rice) Chat

Winters make me feel low in energy at times,How about you guys? The cloudy days,drizzling rain always demands a cozy blanket to curl you up,but with kids around these just can't happen.Soups,snacks and crunchy bites are the most appealing dishes in this weather.How about a chatpata chat to sparkle and enlighten your evenings?? We love all kinds of chats and so does this. Murmure(Puffed Rice)or commonly known as 'pori' in malayalam is a puffed grain made from rice by heating under high pressure.Murmure chats always reminds me of travelling in trains & wandering around beaches in India.The vendors usually sell this by hanging a basket around their neck and the color of the chat looks so tempting that you can resist buying these.This a slightly different preparation from the regular chats,it has roasted peanuts & dalia that adds cunchiness.So,why not enjoy the same tastes sitting miles away and a low calorie filling healthy snack !!


Ingredients
puffed rice 6 cups
onion 1 large chopped fine
tomato 2 chopped fine
cilantro 4-5 sprigs chopped fine
to fry
peanuts 1/3 cup
chana dal /pottu kadala 2tbsp
garlic cloves 2 sliced
green chillies 3 sliced
oil 2 tsp
topping
sweet tamarind chutney 2 -3tbsp
lemon juice 2-3 tbsp
chat masala 2 tsp
chilly powder 1/2 tsp (optional)
asafoetida(hing) a pinch
salt to taste


Method

  • Dry roast the peanuts in a pan till lightly browned.Let it cool,rub with your fingers to remove skin if you wish.Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the garlic slices until slightly browned.Add the slit green chillies,and saute till crisp.Add in the chana dal and fry till lightly browned.Keep aside.
  • Take a large bowl and add in the puffed rice,clear all black ones.Add in the fried peanuts and garlic,green chillies & chana dal. Mix well.
  • Add the chat masala,chilly powder and salt.
  • Add in the chopped onion,tomato,and cilantro.Toss well.
  • Add in all wet toppings just before serving otherwise the puffed rice will lose the crunchiness.Serve immediately!!!


NOTES
* There is no exact measurements to the flavors,you can always alter by increasing or decreasing flavors as per your wish.
* You can add sev to add more taste and crunchiness.
* You can even add grated carrots or boiled cubed potatoes or pomegranate seeds too.I just kept it very simple to satisfy the hunger of my little pranks.
* You can add boiled chick peas too instead of roasted peanuts.
* You can add a pinch of turmeric powder to add color.
