  1. I drove 2 miles to a grocery store just to buy this “puffed rice”. Just made this as a snack and oh my good, it’s so light and delicious. I think I’ll be making some more and will save them in airtight bag. Thanks for sharing!

  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.
