Charmuri/ Spiced Puffed Rice, a Mouth Watering Evening Snack

Charmuri is a Mangaloren version of ‘Bhel’, where no mint or tamarind paste is used. This is most popular street food in Mangalore, you can find vendors selling it in beach sides, carnivals and in fun fairs. Charmuri or khara mandakki (khara = spiced, mandakki= puffed rice) is one spicy mouth watering evening snack I love to eat. Charmuri with sugarcane juice is the best combination ever. Its unbelievably tasty and incredibly easy to prepare.
