ChuruMuri - Spicy Street Food / Spicy Puffed Rice

ChuruMuri is the most popular and most loved street food in Mysore. Today I remembered this Churumuri and wanted to eat it very badly. So thought of preparing this.
 If you step out of your home in Mysore, you can see so many street shops selling churumuri and many stand in queues to enjoy the taste of it. I could still remember how I used to bunk my dinner for having this. This is loved by kids and adults. This Recipe is also very simple to make and can be prepared in minutes. You can add more or less chilli powder and green chillies as per your taste. Since i love to eat spicier, I added bit more. Addition of Coconut oil enhances the taste. The most important point to remember is to serve and eat churumuri immediately to enjoy the Puffed Rice crispy and spicy taste. Just give a try. You will definitely enjoy eating it. Goes well during tea time.
