Masala Pori / Masala Puffed Rice

This is a very easy to prepare recipe in less than 10 min of time which is healthy too. For festive days, like Vijayadasami or Vinayaga Chathurthi, we used to buy more Pori/Puffed rice and most of the time, it is left unused. So we can make this Masala Pori using the leftover Pori.


  • Puffed rice/Pori - 3 cups
  • Oil - 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds -  a pinch
  • Peanuts - 2 tsp
  • Cashews - 5 to 6
  • Roasted Gram/Pottu Kadalai - 2 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Dry Red Chillies - 2
  • Chilli Powder - 3/4 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Salt - For taste (1/2 tsp
  • Sugar - For taste


  • In a Pan, or wide vessel, add oil and when hot add mustard seeds.

  • Then, add the peanuts, cashews, roasted gram, curry leaves, dry chillies and start frying it.

  • When the nuts becomes slightly brown, add the chilli powder, turmeric powder and add the puffed rice and start frying it.

  • Add the salt and mix the puffed rice, very well so that the powders are well coated.

  • Add the sugar finally.

  • Great tea time snack is ready.
  • Can be stored in air tight container.
