 It is known as Pori in south India , Murmura/Kurmura / Mammara in the North India. Puffed rice is prepared by heating the rice kernels at a very high temperature under pressure and steam .The kernels then pop and we get puffed rice.  

Usage of puffed rice is not limited only to snacks,but it also plays a vital role on the devotional front too especially in Southern India .

Pori and vellum (puffed rice & jaggery) is one of the main offerings to Lord Ganesha , the devotees who travel to Sabrimala for pilgrimage also offer this Pori along with coconut and ghee to Lord Ayyappa .Pori Urundai i.e . Sweetened puffed rice balls are offered on the holy auspicious occasion of Karthigai Pournami .(karthik poonam - full moon day in the months of November- December)

Sujata ji of Batter up with Sujata , wanted us to share some quick recipes which are our family favorite for the 286th week of FMBH .

The pictures are so appealing and appetizing, that is making me want to try it out at the earliest.  

Masala pori is also known as Kadle pori because we add spiced and roasted groundnuts in plenty while preparing this snack.  We like our masala pori to be mildly spiced with just some red chilli powder but you can also spice it up with garam masala, sambar powder or even chaat masala. You can also add small bits of deep fried dry coconut pieces, cashews and some boondi too .
