This is one quick snack to make at tea time. If you are a lover of Indian street food then I'm sure you already know and love this!
According to wiki, "Puffed rice is formed by the reaction of both starch and moisture when heated within the shell of the grain. Unlike popcorn, rice kernels are naturally lacking in moisture and must first be conditioned with steam. Puffed rice can be created by heating the stem-conditioned kernels either with oil or in an oven"
I, ofcourse, did not try making it, but used a store bought one to make my masala puffed rice.
Roasted it in a pan with 1 tbsp oil, a little chilli powder, salt and chaat masala. (If you want the yellow colour to it, add turmeric. Also adding curry leaves while roasting gives it a good flavour).
Add some chopped onion, tomatoes and mint leaves powder before serving...
