Beach Style Kara Pori / Masala Kara Pori Recipe - Snacks Recipes

Print Friendly and PDF


Beach style Kara Pori/Spicy puffed rice is one of the yummiest beach side snacks recipes like thenga manga pattani sundal, Milagai bajji, Roasted peanuts, Sutta solam etc etc that one should never miss tasting in beaches.Recently when my parents visited me, I bought a big raw mango to make my dad's favorite instant mango pickle. I had some left over puffed rice which I bought for making karthigai pori urundai.When I saw both in my pantry, I was tempted to try this beach style masala kara Pori with onion. As I had bookmarked my SIL’s recipe,i quickly referred it,also went through this recipe and got few suggestions from Sendhil. I modified it slightly as per our taste and tried it.I din’t add cucumber and i used very less tomatoes(as told by Sendhil) as it makes the puffed rice soggy very quickly.It came out very well & was so so nice.We enjoyed eating kara pori as well as cut raw mango coated with chilli powder & salt like we get in beach. It was heavenly Smile  !!

Enjoy !




Note
  • Skip raw mangoes if u don’t get it.But it tastes great when combined with all these ingredients.
  • U have to soak the peanuts for a minimum of one hour in hot water & keep in a hot casserole if u want to cook it quickly else soak for 3-4 hours in normal water.Add salt while cooking.
  • U can also add finely chopped cucumber pieces & grated beetroots as done in some beaches.
  • Adjust red chilli powder according to ur taste.As tangy taste is more dominant than spicy taste,i used more lemon juice.Adjust as per ur liking.

Enjoy beach style kara pori as an evening snack ! u'll love it :)
