Puffed rice sauteed with peanuts, red chile and curry leaves... this is my little curry tree, it is
probably almost a year old..

This is a mature curry leaf branch. As you can see my little tree is going to take a while to get to this point.

This puffed rice recipe is kind of like a spicy popcorn and addictive. Here is the recipe

4C puffed rice

5 cloves garlic thinly sliced

1/2 C roasted peanuts

1/2C Dalia (roasted chick peas)

2 dried red chilies split

10-12 curry leaves

1tsp mustard seeds

1tsp urad dhal

1/4tsp cumin seeds

pinch (small pinch) Asafetida

1/4tsp turmeric powder

1/2tsp chili powder

salt to taste

2tsp oil

In a wok or large frying pan add oil, heat until hot.

Start by adding the urad dhal and when it turns brown add the mustard sees, cumin, dried red chilies, Asafetida, and curry leaves. Stir to fry slightly.

Add the garlic and fry until golden, then add the dalia,peanuts, turmeric,chili powder and salt.

Switch stove off and add the puffed rice and mix well. Taste and salt to taste.

Store in an airtight container after it cools.
