Spicy Puffed Rice/ Kara Pori / Masal Pori

Masal Pori is one more good street food that we can found it in large number in Andhra Pradesh State of India. That tastes more tangy and spicy. It’s a good snack for evening time. I tasted it out today when I came across Seetha’s blog and her original recipe is HERE.

This is also one of my entries to MBP-Street Food Contest. In her original recipe she has sauted it with mustard seeds and green chillies but I have not done it mine. And I have added lemon juice also for tanginess and karaboondhi and onion in my recipe.


Actually i started to prepare this dish for Street Food Contest only. But when i came to hear about Tried & tasted Event, i started browsing Nupur's blog and her recipes. There was a surprise awaiting for me. I had spicy Puffed Rice recipe in her also but with the name Quick Bhadhang. Really interesting...
