Roasted murmura is a light and dry snack ideal to store at home. It is liked by children as well as adults.

Roasted murmura and rice flakes are commonly found in most homes of South India.  They are ideal  as a light snack with tea in the evenings and  stay good for a long time.

Murmura is commonly called as puffed rice in English. Other names of murmura are mandalu , churmuri, mandakki, mamra, kurmura, mudi

Growing up, we always had it at home. Now, I too prepare either one of them  to have as a light snack when children are hungry. Advantages of having roasted murmura at home

  • easy to binge
  • liked by adults and kids
  • good to have a few snacks ready on the shelf
  • it is low in calorie
  • light on stomach

    Adding peanuts and roasted chickpea to roasted murmura is a wonderful idea. I usually don’t add them. However, next time will do so.
