Borugula Pulihora ~ Lemon Flavored Puffed Rice Pulihora

I have tried various Pulihora Recipes so far, but never tried Pulihora with Puffed Rice. For this Ganesh Chathurthi I wanted to try something special on the festive menu, and this dish resulted as Naivedyam for Lord Ganesha! Puffed Rice is a nice variation from regular white rice and this can be made instantly and apt for when you don't have time to cook rice. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Puffed Rice Pulihora
Puffed Rice - 4 cups ( Muramaralu / Borugulu)
Peanuts - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Dry Red Chili - 2
Green Chili - 3
Chana Dal - 1 Tbsp
Urad Dal - 1 Tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 2 tsp
Curry Leaves - 2 stems
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Lemon Juice - 2 Tbsp
salt - 1 tsp

Preparatory Steps:
  1. Take a medium bowl and add 2 to 3 cups of water. Add 4 cups of Puffed Rice to the water, let it sit for exactly 2 min. After that drain water and squeeze any excess water from Puffed Rice and transfer them to a wide plate.
  2. Dry Roast Peanuts in a non-stick pan and keep them aside. 
  3. In a small bowl mix salt and lemon juice, until salt is melted into lemon juice and keep it aside. 

  1. Heat oil in non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot add Red Chili, Chanda Dal and Urad Dal. As the Lentil starts browning, add mustard seeds and turmeric powder. As mustard starts spluttering add sliced green chili and curry leaves.Add roasted peanuts and combined with the tempering. Switch off the stove and keep it aside. 
  2. Add lemon juice to the puffed rice in a plate and mix it well. Add tempering to the Puffed Rice until everything is well incorporated. 
  3. That's it,  Lemony Puffed Rice Pulihora is Ready now, serve immediately!

This doesn't stay long fresh for long time like normal Pulihora. So I suggest to make in small quantities and consume everything instead of storing for later.
