Cook's Hideout: Murmure Chiwda

Murmure Chiwda

Blogging Marathon# 61: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Bookmarked Recipes from Fellow BM Bloggers
Dish: Murmure Chiwda from Varada's Kitchen
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.

Murmure Chiwda
  • 3cups Murmure (Puffed Rice)
  • 2tbsp Oil
  • ½cup Peanuts
  • 3tbsp Raisins
  • 3tbsp Cashews
  • 1tsp Chili powder
  • ¼tsp Turmeric
  • To taste Salt
  • 6~10 Curry leaves
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet, add the peanuts and saute till they start changing color. Next add the cashews and curry leaves.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
