this recipe of girmit is very nostalgic and takes back to my schooldays during my brief stay in hubli, karnataka. i personally do not like much spicy food, but i had a special attraction towards this recipe. perhaps it could be just because puffed rice or it could be because it is a street food. during those days, i use to get only 3-4 spoons of it as my father was very cautious about its spice level. north karnataka cuisine is almost synonymous with the extra spice, it has to offer. you can generally feel the same heat with this recipe too and i recommend to be very cautious while serving this recipe to kids.

masala puffed ricewhile there is no complicated steps in this masala puffed rice recipe, yet i would like highlight few tips and recommendations. firstly, increase or decrease the amount of masala curry while preparing girmit to adjust the spiciness. also, do not over mix as the churumuri will turn soggy and wont taste great. lastly, prepare the masala curry in bulk, can be stored in refrigerator and used when required.
