Heat 2 teaspoon oil in a heavy based kadai over medium flame. Add puffed rice, a pinch of turmeric powder and salt. Stir and roast it until crispy for around 3-4 minutes. Transfer them in a bowl after roasting to prevent it from burning.

90% happiness derived out of experimenting this recipe. Reminded me of my old xavier days and street side bhelpuri, Bombay town side.
