Just back from the trip to CBE....had a funfilled week with family, relatives and friends. I was not accessible to net for these days though mobile browsing now and then was a different story ;) Hope all is fine with you as well......Mittu enjoyed the journey and the trip...she was so excited in the train that she didnt sleep half of the night making me take her walks in the train. I wonder how kids easily grab everyones attention.....Be it the lady in the Krishna sweets offering her a sweet and another sweet when said thanks or be it the friends she made in the hotel within the short time :) She was called 'friendly kiddo' by everyone whom she met for the first time....exactly opposite the way I was during my childhood days.....I was a timid and reserved kiddo. May be her dads genes at work :)
Now coming on to the recipe...Kara pori is my fav....esp during the rainy season.
- Puffed Rice / Pori - 2 cups
- Peanuts - 1/4 cup
- Fried gram(Pottukadalai) - a fistful
- Curry leaves - a fistful
- Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
- Red chilli powder - 1.5 tsp
- Hing - a generous pinch
- Garlic pods - 4 big ones
- Oil - 1 tsp
- Salt - as per taste
Method:1.In a wide bottomed pan, heat oil - Add peanuts,fried gram, garlic and fry in low flame for 2 mins.Add turmeric, red chilli powder, curry leaves, hing, required salt all in one go and fry for sometime.
2.Add puffed rice, salt and mix well till the puffed rice is mixed well with spices and becomes crispy.
Allow it to cool and store in an airtight container.Crunchy guilt free snack ready in minutes!
My Notes :
- Fry it in low flame or medium else it will get burnt.
- Mix well or toss it for even coating of spices.
