Crisp crunchy kurmura (mamra) ... since its pan roasted this stays fresh for many weeks. Enjoy as is with tea, or as Sev Mamra, this makes a good tiffin box snack for kids too ... or mix in dry or regular bhel to prepare an anytime snack ...


Heat 1/2 cup oil on medium flame. Once its hot, add 1 teaspoon jeera powder (or jeera), pinch of hing, 1/4 teaspoon haldi to the oil

Add 12 cups Mamra, 3 teaspoons salt (to taste) & with a spatula keep on mixing the Mamra till they are evenly coated with all the masalas.

Keep mixing for at least 7-10 minutes till Mamras are crisp, crunchy to the bite.

Switch off gas, Add 2-3 teaspoons Red Chilli powder & mix very well in the end to make them more spicy. Let this cool down to room temperature, store it in an airtight container.

(Do not add chilli powder first because it will burn while roasting, so add in the end after switching off the gas so its color & flavor stay as is)

Add Sev, mix farsan & enjoy as a tea time snack. Makes a good snack box filling too.

Or add bhel ingredients & make dry / regular / dahi bhel

Prepare & enjoy !!!
