Murmura Poha

Cooking time- 20 minutes

Serves- 1-2 people


2 cups or about 150 gms of puffed rice or poha

50 gms of raw peanuts

½ a cup of water

½ a lemon

½ a cup each of chopped onions, capsicum, boiled potato, and tomato

2-3 chopped green chillis

50 gms of curry leaves

½ a teaspoon of mustard seeds and jeera seeds

½ a teaspoon each of chilli powder, turmeric powder

2-3 teaspoons of ghee

Salt to taste


Heat a shallow pan, add about a spoon of ghee and roast the peanuts until it is a golden brown. Keep this aside. In the same pan, add a little more ghee and add mustard seeds, and jeera seeds to sputter. Now add the chopped onions, chillis, capsicum, potato, tomato, and curry leaves. One after another. Allow this to cook till mushy. Add the spices and mix them in. In another bowl, soak the murmura or puffed rice in ½ cup of water and allow it to soak up the water. Once the vegetable mix is cooked, add the soaked murmura and blend in everything well. Squeeze the juice of the lemon on top, mix it and then add the roasted peanuts to this. Serve hot.


  1. Do not oversoak the murmura in a lot of water, else the entire dish will become lumpy.
  2. Sprinkle a little water on the vegetables for them to cook faster.
