Murmura-Puffed Rice - Snack

A snack that we have practically every day when we get back from work... without any guilt.  You could not call it totally calorie-free, but relatively healthier that the stuff we used to devour earlier.



Ingredients:
Puffed Rice / Murmura - 1 cup
Groundnuts/Peanuts - 2 tbsp
Raw mango - finely diced - 2 tbsp
Onion - 1/2 finely diced
Oil - a teaspoon
Salt to taste ( needs very little - so add it with care)
Chaat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Chilie powder - 1/2 tsp
Fine Sev - for garnish - 2 tbsp - OPTIONAL
Coriander leaves - few
Curry leaves

The murmura has to be toasted to make it crisp.  I find it easier to put them in a microwave safe bowl and put it in at high for about 30-40 secs. 
While that is being done, in the oil, put in the peanuts and brown - remove and keep
You can add curry leaves to the hot oil and keep ready.  Some even add a pod of garlic - that is optional again.

Now add salt, chilie powder, chaat masala, the oil and curry leaves to the toasted puffed rice/murmura
Mix well
Add the diced onion, raw/green mango, fried groundnut.  Mix again.
Serve on plate. 
Garnish with sev and coriander leaves.



What else can you add - 
Squeeze of lime
Boiled potato - diced
Sprouts
Diced tomato and cucumber
Chutneys - green chutney / date-tamarind chutney
