    I picked up a large bag of Indian Puffed Rice, what can I make with this?

    I found some curry type recipes online.

    Has anyone cooked with this before?

    TIA

    Abefroman,


    I have a question....are you looking for a sweet dish ? If you are not , there is a dish called "Barugula Upma", it is not hard to make but you would need the spices in order for it taste good, it takes 25 minutes to cook and about a half hour standing.

    There is another dish which is very easy to make and they are "Sweet Puff Balls". .
    The dish is made with jaggery or honey, ground cardamom (and silver flakes when made for diwali).

    I have seen it used in simple snack dishes with nuts and chilli pepper.....

    Thanks! Barugula Upma sounds good, I'm more of a spicy rather than sweet guy.

    OK,

    The other dish I was thinking of is called "Jhal Muri" which happens to taste really good. This is basically how I used to make it......

    300 g of puff rice (murmura)
    3 tbsp finely chopped onions
    60 g of finely chopped cooked potatoes
    60 g of finely chopped tomatoes
    60 g of finely chopped cucumber
    1 tsp of finely chopped green chillies
    2-3 tbsp of fried ground nuts
    1/4 sprouts
    2 tbsp mustard oil ( you can sub this )
    dash of salt

    Combine all your ingredients together and mix the oil and salt at the end.

    This is normally a snack food.

    Thanks! I didn't know potatoes were that common in Indian cooking, I had a dish this weekend that also had potatoes in it.
