Puffed Rice/Kadle Puri/Murmure: Murmura is one of the most common foods in the Indian kitchen. You can eat it in the form of bhel puri, jhal muri etc. or just like that. You can also make delicious puffed rice laddoos by mixing it with jaggery. Also called puffed rice, puffed rice is made from puffed rice grains- which makes it filling and light at the same time. What makes puffed rice more popular is its accessibility and affordability. You will get a packet of puffed rice from every grocery store around. But have you ever wondered how puffed rice is made? Thanks to social media, we have the answer. Recently we came across a video in which the kitchen of a puffed rice factory has been shown. The video has been shared by a Nashik-based content creator with his Instagram handle “_veggie_bite_”.
In the video, we can see an iron pan loaded with sand being placed on an earthen stove. Then a person took a portion of rice grains, mixed some of it and put it on the sand. Rice grain and sand are mixed together until the rice grain swells. Once done, the person immediately sifted the puffed rice with a large mesh strainer. The caption of the video reads, “Murmura/Puffed Rice Making”.
