Here is a simple tea time snack which is such a no brainer! Feel free to alter the ingredients to suit your palate.

In fact I somehow never ever tried making this snack at home and thought it was best left for the 'beach hawkers' to make a perfect one! But on the insistence of my cousin, Mallika , I tried this out at home and was somewhat embarrassed for having skipped making this snack for so many years!! Thanks to the prodding we are enjoying this snack very frequently :)

This forms part of the BM#8 for Day 5 under the theme 'Cooking Under 5 Ingredients'. Also check for the other marathoners here.

Masala Borugulu

Ingredients -

1. Borugulu/Maramaralu/Puffed rice 4-5 cups
2. Onions chopped 1/2 cup
3. Tomatoes chopped 1/4 cup
4. Seasoning ( Oil 1 Tbsp, Peanuts Handful, mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, turmeric, salt as needed, mirchi powder as needed, Hing)
5. Lemon juice as required

Note - You could also add some roasted gram (Putnala pappu / Puthana/Dhalia) , some dry coconut pieces, boondi, sev, grated carrot innovative and try to add in as many healthy ingredients as your creative mind allows!!

Method Of Preparation -

In a microwave safe bowl, pile in the puffed rice and nuke it for 45 seconds to make them fresh smelling and crispy. Alternatively do it in a kadai/wok on the stove top.

In a kadai/wok heat oil and saute peanuts, add mustard seeds, turmeric, mirchi powder and hing.

Remove from fire and mix in the salt.

Transfer the puffed rice into the wok and mix well.

Serve in individual bowls (or for a more authentic feel serve in paper cones :)), adding the required onions, tomatoes and lemon juice!
