Murmura Chivda (Puffed Rice Mixture)

Murmura chivda

    Savory time guys…….How about some crispy crunchy murmura mixture??? Believe me, this is going to be the easiest mixture that you can ever make. My son simply adore snacks like mixture, chakli (murukku), ribbon pakoda, diamond cuts, chips etc. We usually bring tons of these items from India and stock them in the fridge to avoid buying it from the stores. Anyway it doesn’t last that long since I and my husband also have a big share of those snacks. You take one and then can’t stop having more is what happens 🙂

   Since I am not an expert with deep-fried snacks especially my son’s favorite mixture, I decided to make the easier version with murmura. It came out really good and the boy is going gaga over it! This murmura mixture recipe does not involve the process of deep-frying and it wont take more than 15 – 20 minutes of your time. Hope you give this a try.

Ingredients

1. Murmura /puffed rice – 3 – 3.5 cups

2. Oil – 2 – 3 tbsp

3. Peanuts – 1/2 cup

    Cashews – 3 – 4 tbsp

    Pottu kadala/ roasted gram – 3 tbsp

4. Curry leaves – 1 sprig

5. Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

    Kashmiri chilli powder – 3/4 tsp

    Garlic powder – 1 pinch (optional)

    Hing / asafoetida – 1 pinch

6. Salt, powdered – 1/4 – 1/2 tsp or as required to taste

7. Homemade or store-bought sev – 3 tbsp (optional)

Method

Heat 1 tbsp oil at medium heat. Fry peanuts for a few minutes and remove to a paper towel. Next fry cashews and roasted gram until lightly golden and crisp. Remove to a paper towel. Add 1 – 1.5 tbsp oil in the same pan. Fry curry leaves until crisp. Move the fried curry leaves to the side and bring down the heat to low.
