Mamra ni Chikki | Puff Rice Brittle or Balls - 4th Year in Blogging

This is I guess everyone had it outside the school gates during recess or after school. All lariwalas along with other stuff puff rice balls in their lari. It doesn't cost much that time but saving money from whatever pocket money we have and use it for all those goodies, man, those were the days. Now its become necessity for my hubby’s diet. He can consume puff rice and he was eating ready made rice krispies a lot , but need to change that so he asked me buy puff rice so can make it balls or squares or brittle. So I got big bag of puff rice and told him ok I am making this but duh, when I see the container of jiggery it was almost finished so I knew that I will be able to use up only ¼ of the packet of puff rice only , anyway I was not going to use up whole one in one time so it was good. So made this and it was done in no time. When I was looking for jar to put all this squares, it couldn’t fit in my container and I put rest in small container. The small container was in sink in no time , means it was done. So if you also craving for this , it’s very easy to make and its kinda healthy too because I make it from jiggery. You can use sugar too. but I was not very keen to use that.  You can make it balls too but I made it in squares.

My actual blogging anniversary is on 19th but since its on sunday and i dont post on sunday so celebrating today so thank you all friends and well wishers of my blog without you this journey not possible.So thanking you all from bottom of my heart.

I am out for 4 weeks vacation , will see you all after that. But if you are on my FB page I will post yummy dishes from back home.

Ingredients :

4 cups of Puff rice | Mamra
1 and ½ cup shredded Jaggery
Pinch of cardamom powder


Grease a big dish with ghee and keep it aside.
Take a big pan and add jaggery in it. Cook it on very low flame when it it start bubbling, add puff rice in it.
And mix it quickly, all grains should be covered in jiggery glue.
Spread it on grease dish and make it nice layer. Its upto you what size , shape you want to do it.
When it's still warm cut it in big or small squares and separate it, so its easy to handle later on.
Put it in jar and munch on it
