About Jhal Muri (Bengali Spicy Puffed Rice) Recipe

A popular spicy street food of Kolkata and Bangladesh that is famous for it's spices and crunch. This can be prepared at home very easily. Though we cannot get the authentic taste of jhal muri sold by the street vendors, this one by me comes close to it by 96%. The best part is, it's made at home with proper hygience and following all standards of cleanliness. So what more could one ask for? This makes a super yummy snack for the evenings. Mustard oil gives it such a fantastic colour to the dish. It is that one secret ingredient that should not be missed because it tastes so good only with mustard oil. It is a must for this recipe to maintain it's authenticity. Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!
