Kara Pori / Spicy Puffed Rice

Spicy Puffed Rice - a very simple evening snack. This is easy to prepare, crunchy to eat and prepared in few minutes. Addition of crushed garlic to it enhances the flavour and I always hunt for the fried garlic in it. This is a wonderful tea time snack. Whenever we go for a picnic, my mom will pack this, a perfect snack to munch. This can be prepared in large quantity and can be stored in air tight container.
