Aval kara pori / Mirchi poha / Spicy rice flakes

Aval kara pori / Spicy rice flakes is a crunchy, yummy snack variety like popcorn. I learnt this recipe from friend of mine, she used to prepare this for long travels. Thanks to my friend.
Cooking time is very less and i can say its a best party mix.
Usually i prepare this dish once a week in bulk and store it in an air tight container.


-to cook
1. Aval / Poha / rice flakes - 2 cups
2. Sev / Oma podi / Chickpea flour twigs (available in indian grocery stores) - 1 cup
3. Pori / Mamra / puffed rice - 1 cup
Based on the requirement take the above ingredients in 2:1:1 ratio (Aval:Sev:Pori)

-to saute
1. Cooking oil - 2 tbs
2. Green chili - 4 nos (washed and finely chopped)
3. Aldi / Turmeric powder - pinch
4. Salt - 2 pinch


1. Heat 2 tbs oil in a pan and add chopped green chili, turmeric powder. Once chili started splattering add 2 cups of Aval / Poha / Rice flakes and saute till it becomes cruchy. Hardy this takes 4 mins. Remove from fire and put it in a container.
2. Heat the same pan and add Sev / Oma podi / Chickpea flour twigs and Pori / Mamra / puffed rice together and stir continously till they become crunchy. This takes 2 mins. Remove from fire and mix it with Poha prepared in the previous step. Sprinkle the salt while mixing. Thats it!!!
