Mamra Vagharelu

Mamra is puffed rice. Its a famous Gujarati snack, always handy and a saver while hungry. Its a perfect tea time snack too. A bowl of mumra is so filling.
Vagharelu means fried. I am frying these puffed rice - mamras, with sev, peanuts, garlic pods, etc...

Mamra (puffed rice) 1/ 2 kg or 3 cups
Nylon Sev 100 gms or 1 cup
Roasted Peanuts 1 tbsp
Garlic pods 2 with peel itself smash it 
Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves 8 - 10
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp
Dry Red Chillies 2
Dariya  or Roasted Channa dal 1 tbsp {optional}

Heat oil in a pan, reduce the flame. Now add mustard seeds, curry leaves, dry red chilies, garlic pods, Turmeric powder, roasted peanuts, dariya / rosrted channa dal and saute well for 30 seconds.

Now add mamra / puffed rice and switch off the flame. Mix well. 

After 2 minutes or so, add sev and mix well. 

Store in an air tight container.

You can add a pinch of salt for that extra taste. Dont worry it will not become salty. I have added it.

I have not added peanuts as suddenly I found it is unavailable at home, when I started to make :-( but no issues.

Garlic can be avoided.
