Charmuri mixture

Snacking!!! who doesn't love to? Being health conscious these days i try to make healthy snacks and this charmuri mixture is healthy and heavenly!! charmuri is called Puffed rice/mandakki.

charmuri - 2 cups
oil - 1tbsp (preferably coconut oil but any oil will do)
garlic - 10 cloves(garlic lovers can add more and garlic haters can omit this and use mustard instead
peanuts - 1/2 cup
Roasted gram/ huri kadle - 1/4 cup
Whole red chillies - 2
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Heat oil in a wide pan or kadai. Add crushed garlic cloves and fry till light brown, now add peanuts, roasted gram and whole red chillies and fry till the peanuts are roasted well. Now add turmeric, mix well. Finally add puffed rice and mix well till the puffed rice is all yellow!! sprinkle salt to taste and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
