  2. Squeeze away the water from the puffed rice fully and transfer to a wide plate.
  3. Heat a wide and deep pan with oil, add mustard, cumin, dals and peanuts (if using) when they turn golden, add green chilies and curry leaves. Saute for a minute.
  4. Add onions and fry for 2 to 3 mins, add tomatoes, turmeric and salt. Fry till the tomatoes turn mushy. If needed sprinkle little water, cover and cook. Fry the mix till it begins to leave the sides.
  5. Add the puffed rice and heat up well. You could cover and heat up to do it quickly
  6. Add fried gram powder, coriander leaves, mix well.
