Murmura or Moodi is known as puffed rice. The common street food which is widely available from Puffed Rice are Jhal Moodi and Bhel Moodi. These are loaded with flavour and tastes absolutely yummy *Nom Nom*.
Since Poha is one of the common breakfast recipe here in India which is made from Flattened rice. This recipe is a new version of Poha but instead of flattened rice we have used Puffed one. Its light yet filling. The best thing about this recipe is, it’s so quick to make. You can make this in around 5-10 minutes.

Quick and super easy to make. Let’s get started.
