sukka girmit, dry version of girmit

Sukka girmit or sukha girmit recipe explained with step by step pictures. Girmit is a tea time snacks or street food or chat recipe from north Karnataka prepared using puffed rice. This sukka girmit is a dry version of the popular girmit recipe. This chat or snacks recipe is extremely popular in Hubli-dharwad region of Karnataka.

In the actual girmit recipe a curry or gojju is prepared using onion, tomato and tamarind. But in this sukha girmit or sukka girmit instead of tomato and tamarind, little lemon juice is used. All other ingredients remains same. While posting Davangere benne dosa, I have told you that in north Karnataka puffed rice or mandakki is used in many recipes. Soon I will share many more recipes from North Karnataka using puffed rice. This recipe is from my friend Anupama, who currently lives in Hubli.

Actually in North Karnataka, there are so many varieties of Mandakki or churumuri recipes. The recipe varies from region to region and house to house. I have posted Mangalore style churumuri recipe earlier, which is also entirely different.
