“Kharad kadlekayi beeja bisi puri / spicy groundnuts mixed with hot puffed rice” – long ago an old man used to yell this tag line after every 5 minutes as he walked on the roads of Mysore after 6:00 PM selling spicy groundnuts mixed with red chili seasoning and puffed rice. The rains would have cast a chill over the city and people huddled inside homes would welcome something spicy and healthy to eat while sipping filter coffee.
Time Required: 10 Minutes
10 Cups of Kadalepuri / Puffed Rice / Murmura
Few Curry leaves
1tsp Mustard Seeds
2 Dry Red Chilies, Broken into pieces
½ tsp Turmeric Powder
1tsp Chili Powder
½ Cup Groundnuts
¼ Cup Hurigadale / Fried Gram
¼ Cup Dry Coconut slivers
10 Garlic pods with skin
Salt to taste
Take Kadalepuri in a big vessel. Heat Oil in a thick bottomed pan and add Mustard seeds and when they splutter add Turmeric powder, Groundnuts and Garlic. Stir for a minute and add Red Chilies, Hurigadale, Coconut, and Curry leaves. After 30 seconds, turn off the stove and add Chili Powder and Salt and mix well. Let it cool.
Add Kadlepuri to the seasoning and mix well. Store in airtight containers.
