Masala Puffed Rice
Masala Puffed Rice is an all time favourite evening snack and a key ingredient for Sukha Bhel, the famous Indian chaat

Kurmura, murmura, murmure, mumra are different names we know this famous ingredient. We can prepare a lot of dishes with murmure like bhel, murmure ladoos, bhel puri, murmure ka upma etc

Murmure are very light and low in calories, so its a best snack or munch for weight watchers. It is very easy to digest so it is also good option to serve when someone is sick in the house. In this post I have shown step by step recipe for masala puffed rice and peppered puffed rice. 

I always make masala puffed rice and store it in air tight container. Whenever I feel like eating something spicy and chatpatta I quickly make sukha bhel with the masala puffed rice. I have added some fried peanuts and sev to give a nice crunchy effect to the masala puffed rice.

Peppered puffed rice is best when someone is suffering from fever or bad stomach. It is made in ghee and sprinkled with some pepper powder. Puffed rice are easy to digest and adding pepper gives a nice flavor. 

Tips for making masala puffed rice
  1. If the puffed rice have become soggy, dry roast it before using it.
  2. Adding turmeric in the oil while roasting the puffed rice will give a equal and light yellowish colored puffed rice.
  3. Puffed rice burn very easily so while roasting use a slightly thick bottom pan.
  4. Do not leave the puffed rice unattended on stove, it will burn quickly.
  5. Store the masala puffed rice in air tight containers, as they become soggy.
  6. Masala Puffed rice can easily last for a month.
  7. You can even add some fried poha (rice flakes), some crushed puris, chana dal etc and make a nice crunchy chivda.

So lets proceed step by step for making masala puffed rice
