Churmuri (puffed rice) 

Churmuri – Just the mention of this snack / street food can make your mouth water. Churmuri is a ‘no cook’ snack prepared using puffed rice, onions,tomatoes and spice powders 🙂 Absolutely simple but simply delicious 🙂

Today as I am writing this, I am flooded with memories 🙂 I have had the best of time bonding with friends, sister and cousins eating churmuri. Unforgettable after college hangout sessions at the famous ‘Ballal circle churmuri’ almost everyday 🙂 Oh boy! What wonderful days and memories :)Back in Mysore, we would run to the street vendor whenever we craved for Churmuri.

For the love of churmuri – I end up making this at home every now and then since I do not have any other option to fulfil my cravings. It is no doubt tasty but  it somehow doesn’t match the ones ‘street food uncle’ makes 🙂

Here is my version of the famous Churmuri 🙂
