Cuisine: Indian
Category: snacks
Serves: Serves 2
Prep time: 5 Minutes
Cook time: 5 Minutes
Total time: 10 Minutes
1 cup - 250ml
  • Puffed rice/Murmura/Pori - 2 cups
  • Ghee - 1 tbsp
  • Roasted peanuts and fried gram dal - a fistful ( optional)
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Sambar powder - 1 tsp  
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
  • Garlic cloves - 7 nos (crushed slightly with skin)
  • Roasted peanuts & fried gram dal - a handful ( optional)

  • Take a wide mouthed kadai and add a tbsp of ghee.Spread it all over the pan.When it becomes hot,add the peanut and dal ( If adding ), Curry leaves, sambar powder,  salt, turmeric powder and slightly crushed garlic flakes ( no need to peel the skin)..Fry everything for a moment in low to medium flame.Do not burn them.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).
  • For variations, you can use 3/4 tsp red chilli powder + 1/8 tsp turmeric powder. You can also use leftover soggy puffed rice. No need to use crispy puffed rice/ murmura.
  • 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 garlic with skin.But I remove the skin while eating.Finally its ur choice!
  • Use ghee for tempering. Do not avoid it. 

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