Khara Pori / Spiced Wheat Puffs with Garlic ~ Healthy Snack !

If u are looking for spicy, crunchy, tasty and healthy snack then this Spiced Wheat Puffs is the right choice. Perfect for evening snacks along with some hot tea/coffee. My H's favorite snack next to Sundals. So i often make this khara Pori but never get a chance to click but this time made specially to post here.
Except me everyone likes this snack at home, my fav is Masala Pori. So refreshing n yummy snack with freshly grated veggies n spices. Mmmm!!! perfect for this weather.  Have tried Masala Pori with wheat puffs but it doesn't tasted good, roasting only makes it more tasty n crunchy. My kids too love this khara pori with more peanuts. So u too try this for your kids, healthy n filling snack. I have used wheat puffs but u can make it with rice puffs too.

Ingredients
  1. Wheat Puffs/Rice Puffs      4 cups
  2. Peanuts                               1/2 cup or more
  3. Dalia / Pottu Kadalai          2 tbsp
  4. Garlic                                 7 or 8 fat cloves.
  5. Dry Red chili                      2 no. (broken)
  6. Turmeric Powder                1/4 tsp
  7. Chili Powder                       1/4 tsp
  8. Salt                                      1/4 tsp
  9. Oil                                       2-3 tsp

Method
  • Heat oil in a big kadai/pan, add garlic and fry for a minute then add dry red chili, turmeric powder and fry the garlic till it tunrs golden brown n crisp.
  • Then add dalia, peanuts(i used raw peanuts) and fry it well till it gets roasted well n crisp. Fry everything in low-medium heat.
  • Now add wheat puffs or rice puffs, sprinkle salt n chili powder and fry well till all the puffs gets coated with turmeric powder.
  • Fry in medium heat for 4-5 minutes, these wheat puffs will not be crunchy when its hot after cooling it turns so crispy n crunchy.
  • That's it...spiced wheat puffs ready. After cooling transfer it to an air tight container.

Notes:
Adding more garlic will give the original flavor n taste.
U can also add a sprig of curry leaves along with dry red chilies.
