I came across this Mangalore style Churumuri recipe in a YouTube video when I was looking for puffed rice snacks for our weekend evening. Puffed rice is known as Mandakki in Kannada/Karnataka and Kurlari in Mangalore. Churumuri is a popular street food in Mysore, Mangalore Karnataka. This recipe is more like Tamil nadu beach style kara pori recipe with puffed rice mixed with vegetables like carrot, onion, raw mango, tomato, coriander leaves spiced with chilli powder and salt. Its a simple snack recipe but tastes amazing. Usually plain sev and Congress Kadalae / spicy masala peanuts is added to churumuri. But I used roasted peanuts and corn flakes mixture.

During mango season, finely chopped raw mango pieces are used. For variations, you can add some chat masala too.
