Churumuri recipe is an instant healthy Street food prepared by mixing chopped vegetables with puffed rice, tossed with spices and served immediately.
Growing up in Mumbai, one of my favourite snacks to grab is Chat and Mumbai’s vegetable sandwich. Chat is such a broad term, under the subsect Street Food. It can vary from Sev Puri, Pani Puri, Dahi Puri to Ragda Patties typically. But over the years, I would love to have a go on any locally made street food. it could be Masala Puri made by the local vendor in Bangalore or some Golgappa’s / Ram Ladu’s from the street stall in Delhi.
As I vaguely remember, we were famished while travelling back to Mysore and we had pit stopped for a coffee and a quick grab. Amma loved her snack loaded with spicy chilli powder whilst she requested the vendor to tailor it our liking with NO spicy ingredients. Loved every bit of the snack served in the paper cone and they have been in memories for a while. Churumuri was the Snack, very native to Karnataka and every region takes pride in their street food.
Churumuri is a healthy Street food that does not need many fancy ingredients.Most of the ingredients might be readily available in our pantry. It is a mixture of puffed rice, salad vegetables like onion, tomato, grated carrots & raw mango, tossed well , garnished with onions, coriander leaves & drizzled with lemon juice. Adding a good portion of coconut oil is a must to this Churumuri. Do not try to replace it with any strong flavoured oil as all the goodness and authenticity to this Streetfood comes from simple flavours.
