murmura chaat recipe: light murmura chaat, murmura chaat

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.

we just had this and some fruits this day. may be the travelling back home from coimbatore was taking a toll on us.

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.

make a whole lot and store in an air-tight jar… of course minus the potatoes… you can munch these whenever you want.

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.


dassana July 4, 2012 13

the microwave technique is new to me. i always fry the murmura the traditional way.

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:)


dassana July 4, 2012 15

thanks family cook. you can make this “chaat” for your kids too. at least they won’t eat chaat from outside :-)
