Spicy Masala Pori Recipe
We all love snacks and if its Indian ad spicy no one can say no. I love to have something to much along with my cardamom tea. But most Indian snacks are deep fried and sometimes we look for something light. This masala pori or spicy murmura is so easy to do, crunchy and light. You can make a big batch of it and save it. You can add nuts and seeds to this for a good crunch. I have added garlic for a fragrant flavor, you can skip it if you don't use garlic in cooking.  Pori is basically puffed rice, usually sold plain or found in mixtures.
