Murmura Chivda/Namkeen, Healthy Snack Recipe, Salted, Spicy Puffed Rice Recipe
Murmura chivda can be prepared quickly and is good for tea time snacks or even late-night munching. This also serves as a good snack during the occasion and festive season like Diwali, Holi etc.
Indian festivals are all about traditions, colours, good food and get-togethers. In such times we need to snack on something while chit-chatting with family or friends. All this while we gain a lot of weight eating sweets and high carb food, it becomes necessary to balance out. Murmura chivda becomes a perfect snack to munch on. As it is light on the tummy and good in taste which doesn’t make you too full to skip the dinner and satiates the hunger for a time being.
I usually make Murmure namkeen on Friday when we plan for late-night binging TV shows with friends and need a snack to munch on. This makes for a perfect healthy munching option. I always try to keep snacks as healthy as possible as we tend to eat them more than we need to and eventually increase unnecessary carbs in the body.
