Girmitt (Puffed rice with onion masala)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
One of regular food in North Karnataka. It is a street food available at any time in small tea stalls. (another taste of Girmitt.)
Easy to make and it does not need any cooking. Great filler if you are very hungry and no patience to cook. Only to take care is do not drink water immediately after you eat it.(thats what our granny's tell, do not know the proper reason!! but they say if you drink water you will have upset stomach. 
I have posted the recipe with cooking in my previous entries. Lets try this one without cooking.

All you need is,
Puffed rice - 1big bowl 
for masala 
Onion - 1 big,  chopped into small cubes
Red Chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Fresh coriander - handful, cleaned and chopped
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - 6 to 8, cleaned and chopped
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp 
Dalia powder - 1 tbsp(optional)
Sugar - 1 tsp
Mix all the ingredients in a big bowl. Then add the puffed rice and mix well just before you eat otherwise it will become soft and you will not enjoy the taste.

Keep Smiling,
