murmura chaat or puffed rice chaat is a light and healthy snack. there are days when you want to eat light food. i made these lightly spiced puffed rice ( murmura chaat) on such a day.

i also kept the spicing, flavoring light. i did not add roasted gram or peanuts or onions to the puffed rice (murmura).

just lightly roasted the puffed rice with some turmeric, asafoetida, black salt and curry leaves.

    We have this almost everyday. The potato is optional but we add some lightly sauteed groundnuts. I microwave the murmura for about 40-50 secs and they are nice and crisp.

    Your Blog is worthy of visits, keep it up.

    My Mom used to make this version at home and so do many of aunts. However, it was not called chaat maybe because they wanted to keep away the children from the whole concept of eating the chaat from outside:)
