Kara Pori Recipe - Masala Kara Pori - Spicy Puffed Rice Recipe

Kara Pori Recipe
Kara pori / Spicy Murmura / Puffed Rice is my fav....esp during the rainy season. I always love spicy crispy snacks during winters..that compensates for the chillness. This snack is guiltfree and sure better than the packed chips and other junks.

Just back from the trip to CBE....had a funfilled week with family, relatives and friends. I was not accessible to net for these days though mobile browsing now and then was a different story ;) Hope all is fine with you as well......Mittu enjoyed the journey and the trip...she was so excited in the train that she didnt sleep half of the night making me take her walks in the train. I wonder how kids easily grab everyones attention.....Be it the lady in the Krishna sweets offering her a sweet and another sweet when said thanks or be it the friends she made in the hotel within the short time :) She was called 'friendly kiddo' by everyone whom she met for the first time....exactly opposite the way I was during my childhood days.....I was a timid and reserved kiddo. May be her dads genes at work :)
