  1. Ok, I got this “puffed rice” from an Indian store (they are also called rice crispies?). Just made it as a snack and wow, it’s so light, spicy and yum! I think I’ll be making some more.

  2. OMG! This looks seriously delicious. I first found out about this recipe from my nepali neighbours but I forgot its name at the time. So glad I found it here.
