Kaara Pori

Spiced up puffed rice has always been the best loved South Indian chaat. We were denied of this during the childhood due to hygiene reasons but now as adults we override this Mr.Clean factor to get a kick out of it now and then when we spot them. There are different styles of kaara pori and this one is my home version, quick and healthy.
