Borugulu, spicy Murmuralu, Puffed rice snack

Hope everyone is taking part in the voting....Go ahead and choose your favorite dish!...

For the 6th day of the marathon, I wanted to prepare something other than regular I chose 'Puffed rice snack'!

Borugulu is probably one of the very common street side snack you can find in Andhra...I don't know about rest of the country.
I remember when we were young, a guy would bring a big bag of puffed rice on his bring selling street to street. Whoever wanted to buy would buy by the kilo or whatever required.
Then I remember sitting along Tank Bund is Hyderbad and gobbling up quickly before anyone would want a share from mine.
Another place I loved getting this spicy quick snack was while walking up the Tirupathi steps. Along the way you will find vendor selling this and around the time we always went, it used to be mango time and he would put tons of raw mango...and it used to taste yum!!..
I prepare this sometimes at home as a quick snack and me and my hubby enjoy it more than the kids. That maybe because they haven't tasted it at the right place.


2 cup puffed rice, murmuralu, dry roasted to crispiness
1 -2 tbsp putnalu pappu, chutney daal, dry roasted
1/4 cup peanuts, dry roasted
1-2 tbsp grated carrot
1-2 chopped onion
1 tbsp chopped tomato
1 green chilli chopped finely
few coriander leaves, chopped
1-2 tbsp mango, chopped
salt to taste
chilli powder to taste
lemon juice to taste


Dry the ingredients which have to be done.
Mix all the ingredients together.
Serve as is.
