Once you add the vegetable mix, add puffed rice mix.
Make sure you add the puffed rice just before serving so that it doesn’t become soggy.

-You can use plain puffed rice instead of the mix but the mix makes a difference.
-Shredded radish is optional. if you like the rawness of radish then i would recommend you to use it.
