Kolhapuri bhadang is a spicy chivda prepared using puffed rice. To make this, you need to saute peanuts, garlic, and curry leaves in some oil. Then switch off the flame and add the turmeric, red chilli powder, and salt. Turn on the flame on low and stir in the puffed rice, a sprinkle of salt and bhadang masala, and cook it while stirring in continuously. You can store the puffed rice snacks in an airtight container for a week or two!
Puffed rice, ghee, jaggery, and peanuts – Combine all these ingredients for sweet puffed rice snacks that are an all-time winter favourite! Start by dry roasting the murmura on a medium flame to make them crisp. Keep it aside. Now heat about a teaspoon of ghee and add the jaggery powder to it. Once the mixture melts, take the pan off the flame and mix the puffed rice and stir well. Transfer the mixture to a greased pan and spread it into a thin layer. Let it cool and cut it out.
This is one of the rarest puffed rice snacks that require basic cooking skills. Soak puffed rice in some curd and add salt, green coriander, and finely chopped green chillies to it. Once it forms a tight batter, keep it aside. Saute some green peas in some oil and season it with salt and khatai (amchoor powder). Mash the pea preparation. Form kebabs by enveloping the peas filling with the murmura batter, shallow fry them on a low flame.
Heat butter and add brown sugar to it once it melts. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook over medium heat while stirring it constantly.
