Spicy Puffed Rice


=====================================================
If you go through Tamalpaku's Recipe List, you'll be awestruck seeing so many different varieties! You'll find more than 400 recipes (I myself went through almost 250!) You never have to look in another place for a recipe coz I believe Harini covers almost every category!
[Recipe source: Tamalpaku]
Ingredients
Puffed Rice/ Murmure - 3 cups
Peanuts - handful (2-3 tablespoons)
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 teaspoon
Turmeric powder / Haldi - 1.4 teaspoon
Salt-  as per taste (1-2 teaspoons)
Red Chilli Powder / Paprika - 1 teaspoon 
Garlic - 3 cloves (CRUSHED slightly)
Oil - 1 teaspoon
To serve -
Onions - 1/4 cup, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 medium, chopped finely
Lemon Juice - 1-2 teaspoons
Coriander leaves - for garnish
Sev / Boondi - as required (optional
Makhana/ Foxnut - a handful (optional)
Method -
1) Add the Puffed Rice to a microwave safe bowl & MW it on high for around 45 seconds-1minutes. It becomes nice & crisp. (Alternatively, dry roast in a Kadai/wok for 2 minutes)

2) Heat the oil in a wok. Add mustard seeds and crushed garlic & sauté for a minute

3) Add turmeric powder & red chilli powder & asafoetida. Mix well

4) Add peanuts, salt & mix

5) Finally, add foxnut (optional) and Puffed Rice
 
6)  Mix well & roast for about 2 minutes till everything is crisp

You can eat the puffed rice as it is. It tastes marvelous. The addition of garlic lights up the whole dish!
OR 
To serve -
- take required amount in a bowl and  mix onions, tomato & few drops of lemon juice

- garnish with chopped coriander leaves and sev/boondi if you want

Verdict: A very quick snack to make. It tastes really good. And the addition of garlic gives it an extra zest! :-)
