Puffed Rice Mixture

Puffed Rice Mixture is a quick win – easy to make, yet tasty. Less oil, yet crunchy. During summer holidays my Amma (Mother) always prepares this and stores it in a container, so that we (me and sis) can snack for 3-4 days.


Puffed Rice Mixture:

Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 7 mins | Serves : 2

Recipe Category: Snack


Puffed Rice / Pori – 2 cups

Peanuts – 1/4 cup

Fried gram(Pottukadalai) – 1/4 cup

Curry leaves – 1 spring

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Coriander powder – 1/4 tsp

Chat masala ( optional)- 1/4 tsp

Sambar Powder – 1/8 tsp

Hing – a generous pinch

Oil – 1 tsp

Salt – as needed


  • Add oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot, keep the stove in low heat and add turmeric powder, sambar powder, coriander powder, hing, salt and chat masala


  • Add puffed rice and saute for 2 mins. Add peanuts, fried gram and curry leaves and fry till peanuts and fried gram became golden brown


  • The pori should get well coated with the spice powders. Store in an air tight jar and enjoy 🙂


My Notes:

  • You can add chilli powder if you want pori to be spicy
  • Can add peanuts and fried gram after tempering but I have a fear they might be overcooked!
