Churumuri recipeChurumuri or spicy puffed rice or mangalore style bhel is a popular and most loved street food or chat recipe from the Mangalore-Udupi region of Karnataka. Churumuri is a very tasty and spicy. Not only in Karavali region, this mangalore style churumuri is also in practice across Malenadu region of Karnataka.

Churumuri is a spicy food. But you can adjust the red chilli powder according to your spice level. Also coconut oil is added, which enhances the taste of churumuri. But if you want you can replace it with any other vegetable oil. You can also add a pinch of chat masala if you like the churumuri that way. And most important thing is once you prepare churumuri, serve it immediately.
