An Indian friend of ours gave me a sandwich bag full of spicy puffed rice today. It is very addictive.
All of the things I love in a snack food.
I looked up the recipe online and there were thousands of them. Most agree upon the puffed rice, chili powder, salt, turmeric and curry leaves. All of these were in our friend's version.
After a few small handfuls my mouth goes a bit numb from the chilies. I love that. The only time it is an issue is after the third or fourth handfuls. It starts to get a little hot after that.
If you decide to try one of the recipes make small batches. It is addictive and you will eat it all.
