with step by step photo and video recipe. puffed rice are generally used as side ingredients in many indian recipes like dosa batter, idli batter and other south indian breakfast recipes. however, there are few recipes where murmura is used hero ingredients. spicy murmura chivda is one such recipe which is an ideal and healthy evening snack enjoyed with a cup of masala tea.

my previous post on puffed rice was churumuri, a spicy lip-smacking street food from south canara. i guess it was 2 years back and since then i have not posted any puffed rice recipe and i was getting several requests for puffed rice recipes. even though i have shared the spicy mixture recipe recently and i have used murmura as one of the key ingredients in it. but it wasn’t again the main ingredient and was one of the key ingredients. hence i thought of sharing this spicy murmura chivda recipe. basically, i got this idea from diet bhel snack offered from haldirams. i have tried to make it very similar to it, but it is less fancy and less spicy compared to the haldirams one.

while the murmura recipe or spicy puffed rice is extremely simple and can be prepared within minutes. yet some tips, recommendations and serving ideas for spicy murmura chivda. firstly, ensure to use crisp and fresh puffed rice for this recipe. stale or soft puffed rice would not have the same result and also may have an unpleasant odor. secondly, i have topped the spicy puffed rice with fine sev. but it can be easily extended by adding spicy mixture or any other chivda or namkeen. lastly, you can serve this by adding finely chopped tomatoes and onions with few drops of lemon juice. add these moist vegetables just before serving or it may turn soggy.
