Kadale puri Oggarane (Puffed Rice Poha)

Kadale puri Oggarane / Mandakki Oggarane is one of the evening snacks I remember my mom making when were kids. The recipe has undergone quite a few changes and this is one which I like the most.

This is one of the easy breakfast items that you can prepare if you have Kadle puri on hand.

You need:
Kadlepuri / Puffed rice - 4 cups
Onion - thinly sliced 1 cup
Potato - 1 medium sized- finely chopped 
Green Peas - 1/2 cup cooked 
Green chillies - 4 -5 (adjust as per taste)
Red chillie powder - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Oil - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves & grated coconut for garnish

For the tempering
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp 
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Dry red chillies - 1 cut into 1cm pieces

Take the puffed rice in a perforated container and hold it under the take for 2 - 3 mins.
Set it aside and allow the water to drain.

In a pan take 1 tsp oil, add the chopped potatoes and fry on medium heat for 3 - 4 mins till it is cooked.
Keep it aside
In the pan, prepare the tempering - heat oil, add mustard when it starts spluttering add the urad dal and then the red chillies
Add the slit green chillies and onion
Fry on med - high heat till the onions turn translucent and pinkish
Add the potatoes and cooked peas
Fry for another 1 minute
Add the red chillie powder, turmeric powder and salt
Mix well
Add the puffed rice and mix well
Add the lemon juice
Garnish with Coconut and coriander leaves
Serve hot

I used fresh peas - I think they taste better :)
Check the puffed rice by pressing it between your fingers, it should feel like cooked rice, if not then repeat the first step again
