Kaara Pori/Masala Pori/Spicy Puffed Rice

Masala pori is an easy and quick snack. When you don't have anything to munch on, you can make this snack in minutes and enjoy it along with your tea/coffee. Even kids will love this for its flavor, taste and cripiness. Now, here is the recipe for the quilt-free low calorie snack!!


Puffed rice - 2 cups
Fried gram/Pottu kadalai - 1 tbsp
Cashews -5 or 6, broken into small pieces
Ghee - 1 or 2 tsp
Garlic - 4 or 5, small ones
Curry leaves - few
Salt, chilli powder and turmeric powder as per taste


Crush the garlic well without peeling off its skin. Keep all the ingredients nearby and ready to use.

Heat ghee in a pan, add garlic and saute for few seconds. Then add the fried gram and cashews together and fry them until they turn golden brown. Then add the curry leaves, turmeric powder and chilli powder, pori/puffed rice and salt. Fry till the pori becomes crisp. If your pori by itself is crispy, you may not have to fry for a long time. You can give a nice stir until everything mixes well and can turn off the stove.

Allow to cool down completely and store in an airtight container. Instead of cashews you can also add a handful of peanuts. In that case, you may have to fry them separately first and add to the pori finally.
