Pidata kinda pappu/ Puffed rice Masala

Pidata kinda pappu is a very famous street food in Andhra Pradesh. They have all the ingredients especially a huge bag of puffed rice/maramaralu just laying out on the bandi. The smell is amazing when they prepare the snack too.

Again this is one of the street foods that is loved by all ages and super easy to make.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Sev : 3 teaspoons 
Salt to taste 

To be dry roasted:
Puffed Rice/Maramaralu: 2 cups
Peanuts : 2 teaspoons 
Roasted Bengal gram/putnalu/Dalia: 2 teaspoons 


Dry roast the puffed rice for 2 minutes and keep aside. 
Dry roast the peanuts and putnalu for 2 minutes.
Take a mixing bowl, and add all the ingredients except sev, chili powder and lemon juice and mix well. Add both of them and toss well.
