Masala pori

This is a simple spicy snack with extra crunch. One of my Maharashtrian friend used to prepare this way. Everyone has their own twist, so add or reduce whatever way you like.


  • Puffed rice - 10 cups
  • Coconut oil - 2 tbsp
  • Peanut - 1/4 cup
  • Red chilly powder - 1 tbsp
  • Chat masala - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Mustard - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - 15
  • Salt - as per taste

For garnishing :

  • Cucumber - 1
  • Onions - 1
  • Tomatoes - 1
  • Coriander leaves - few
  • Lemon juice - 1 tsp


Chop the vegetables finely and keep aside. In a big pan add coconut oil or butter, add puffed rice and saute for 4 to 5 mins till it becomes hot. Don't overheat it.

Add some more oil in the pan, fry peanuts and keep aside. In the same oil add mustard seeds, curry leaves, redchilly powder, salt and chat masala. Then add peanuts and saute till it is mixed . Allow to cool.

After it cools completely add puffed rice and mix well. Store in a airtight container.

When serving add chopped veggies, lemon juice and serve immediately.
