Kara pori/Spicy puffed rice recipe Kara pori recipe - Spicy puffed rice recipe with garlic flavor
Cuisine: Indian
Category: snacks
Serves: Serves 2
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 10 Minutes

1 cup - 200ml
  • Puffed rice/Murmura/Pori - 2 cups
  • Ghee - 2 tsp
  • Sambar powder - 1/2 - 3/4 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Garlic cloves - 7 nos (crushed lightly with skin)
  • Roasted peanuts & fried gram dal - a handful ( optional)

  • Take a wide mouthed kadai and add 2 tsp of ghee.Spread it all over the pan.When it becomes hot,add the sambar powder,salt,turmeric powder and slightly crushed garlic flakes ( no need to peel the skin), curry leaves and fried gram dal/Peanuts.Fry everything for a moment in low flame .Nice aroma arises.Now add the puffed rice,toss it till its coated uniformly and switch off the flame. Mix it well with the fire off and allow the puffed rice to remain in the kadai for sometime to become crispy.( Note: If u try to eat it hot, puffed rice will be soggy & soft.It will become crispy only after it cools down).
  • U can store this pori in an air tight box after its cool down completely and enjoy for few days with coffee/Tea.
  • You can skip garlic and make it as a no garlic version.But i feel garlic adds more flavor to this recipe.My husband likes to eat that garlic with skin.But i remove the skin while eating.Finally its ur choice!

Crispy , yummy , delicious khara pori is ready to Enjoy with tea / coffee :)
