This is a perfect recipe for crispy and crunchy snack. With just a few ingredients and few minutes, you have a freshly made snack in no time.
We are starting the final week of blogging marathon for this month today and my theme for the week is one of my favorite — cooking from fellow blogging marathoners. As a group we are checking and commenting each others posts very frequently and I have a ton of recipes bookmarked from them.
I already have quite a few dishes made from the blogs, so this one’s from my drafts. This Murmure chiwda is from Varada’s Kitchen and I made it for Diwali (back in November). This is a easy, quick to make snack that can be whipped up in no time.
My husband loves these crispy and crunchy type of snacks and this was just a perfect recipe. With just a few ingredients and few minutes, you have a freshly made snack that is sure to please everyone.
- ½ cup Peanuts
- 3 tbsps Raisins
- 3 tbsps Cashews
- 1 tsp Chili powder

- To taste Salt
- 6 ~ 10 Curry leaves
- Heat oil in a large skillet, add the peanuts and saute till they start changing color. Next add the cashews and curry leaves.
- Once the cashews are lightly golden, add the raisins, chili powder and turmeric. Cook for 1 minute or so or until raisins start to plump up.
- Stir in the puffed rice (murmure) and salt and mix well to combine all the ingredients. Cook for 2~3 minutes. Turn off the heat. Store the chiwda in an airtight container once completely cooled.
