Microwaved Kara Pori/ Spiced Mamra / Puffed Rice Under 5 Minutes

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Saturday, July 20, 2013 | 4:01 PM

The best way to come up with some recipe ideas is to keep your pantry free of snacks. Then out of need we can make something to munch away. A few days ago, I was up until midnight, watching a live web cast of a wedding happening in Chennai. It was amazing to look at people in live time and experience such happiness many miles away. I was kind of looking for some munchies and found some puffed rice/pori. Immediately, I wanted to have some kara/ spiced pori. Soon, I got the bowl out and made myself some delicious and crunchy pori in minutes. This one is for all those who love to have a late night snack and mix them up in minutes.


Measuring Cups and Spoons


Coconut Oil - 1 tbsp
Puffed Rice/ Pori / Mumra - 2 cups
Roasted Peanuts - 1/2 cup
Roasted Channa Dal - 1/4 cup
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp ( please adjust the spice as per taste)
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida Powder - 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves - a few
Mango Powder - 1/2 tsp
Chaat Masala - a pinch or two ( optional)


1. In a microwave safe bowl add some oil. Add the spices along with salt to the oil and mix well. Place in the microwave and heat for about 45 seconds.

2. Add the peanuts, roasted channa dal and pori to the oil. Mix well and coat the oil with spices ( please use your hands to spread them well, makes all the difference). Warm again in the microwave for 1minute and 20 seconds.

Note: Please note that each microwave works differently, so adjust accordingly.

3. Remove and serve immediately or cool and store in Air tight container.
