Masala Borugulu/Puffed Rice Snack

Some foods are really bonded with good memories........this simple snack reminds me of the wonderful summer holidays that I have spent in my Pinni's (Mom's younger sissy) house, she used to make big dabba (big snack box) of this Masala Borugulu and we all kids used to complete the whole thing in a wink .........this is a guilt free snack.......


4 Cups of borugulu(Puffed Rice), 1/4 cup,putnalu (roasted dalia/roasted chana dal), 1/2cup,peanuts, 2tbsp.split urad dal, 6-8 cloves of garlic(lightly crushed), 2no.dry whole red chillies, 1tsp.mustard seeds, 1/2tsp.cumin seeds, 3sprigs of curry leaves, 2tsp.turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp.chilli powder (adjust as per spice level), salt to taste, 2tsp.oil.

Take a Kadai or wide pan, heat oil , once it's hot add urad dal, peanuts, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, when they start to splutter, add the garlic and saute for a few minutes, now add the whole red chilli and fry until the garlic is light brown and little hard, now add the putnalu/dalia, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt , fry for a min, the add the puffed rice, mix well and roast till they are crunchy. Preserve in a air tight container, they lost long fresh for 2weeks.
