Video Recipe – Quick Masala Murmura | Khara Pori | How to make Masala Mamra

Masala Murmura is a quick to make, almost-oil free and healthy snack for kids. My little one loves this and calls this Sukha Bhel (not quite a misnomer), and I make this quite often at home . Murumura (Puffed rice) is called Kadalepuri in Kannada or Pori in Tamil. And for all those from Bangalore, you would remember those hawkers in Lalbagh / Cubbon Park peddling these Masala Murmura or Khara Kadlepuri cones over a hot coal pot !!

In these days of a forced stay at home, snacks are demanded by kids through the day. These kind of jar snacks with a long shelf life take care of those hunger (or quasi-hunger) pangs. As Renu suggested , this week we are going with #SnackMania where we present long shelf-life as theme for #FMBH.
