Quick Charmuri

Quick Charumuri is prepared using puffed rice/murmuri/puri/Mandakki. Mandakki/munaddakki is prepared from Rice. This Quick Charmuri /Masala Mandakki is prepared in Udupi style. Try and enjoy Udupi style of Mandakki. Added Chat Masala and Little garam masala to rasam powder. (twist in the kahani - Khaneka Meharbani).

When we go to Udupi we do visit Ratha beedi/Car street as it is known as, is surrounded by temples and Ashta Matas. Famous Udupi Shree Krishna Temple is here in Ratha Beedi Udupi.
The streets are always filled with people who are visiting temples, the vendors, various shops and even some houses also you can see there.
In Ratha beedi there are some people sell varieties of food. The charmuri sold here is very famous and yummy. Churmuri seller does a lovely charmuri and people will be surrounded and the gathering for his charmuri is always so many. He does use coconut oil, rasam powder, carrots and onions.

Hotel Mantapa in Saligrama Near Brahmavar (Karnataka/Indian) is one of the famous spot for Udupi Style Mandakki.

Let us see some benefits of eating coconut oil. 
Coconut oil is high in natural saturated fats and it helps in increasing the healthy cholesterol in our body. It also helps in converting bad cholesterol into good cholesterol. It helps to promote heart health and lower the risk of heart heart diseases. It helps to increase immunity against infections and diseases. It is useful for weight loss. Coconut oil contain fatty acids and it helps in taking away the excessive weight. It also helps in reducing abdominal obesity in women. Coconut oil is easy to digest and helps in healthy functioning of the thyroid and endocrine system. ( Endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulates metabolism, growth and development tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep and mood among other things). Coconut oil helps to protect the infected body part from fungi, bacteria and viruses. It is good for bruises since it speeds up the healing process of damaged tissues. Coconut oil contain minerals like calcium and magnesium and these minerals are necessary for the development of bones. It is very good for women in their middle age who are prone to osteoporosis. It helps in controlling blood sugar and improves the secretion of insulin. Coconut oil is a good stress buster. It is good for skin and hair care.
This is simple, easy and yummy Churumuri. All You need is Puffed rice groundnuts, some sev or fried cornflakes.

Method :

1 Heat a pan and put oil and let it heat. Fry groundnuts till they turn slightly golden brown.

11. Add coconut oil and mix it slowly.

12. Serve or eat quickly or it might turn soft.

Note :

You are supposed to mix onion, carrot mixture when you are ready to eat or serve. Or it turns soft and it does not hold crunchy taste. Adding dry roasted groundnuts at the top is optional. We do not add it.
You can add cut tomatoes instead of lemon juice. (I added lemon juice). Adding sev or mixture adds to the taste. (But we do not add). Any brand of rasam powder/sambar powder can be used.( I used MTR  Rasam Powder). It provides Udupi style of rasam flavour. Adding garam masala and chat masala is optional. I have added a very little quantity of garam masala and chat masala powders.
You can prepare Puffed Rice mix and store it. (mixed with cornflakes and groundnuts).
Time : 15 Minutes
