Chane Murmure(Puffed Rice with Roasted Grams)

My Mom she is the best...and she is an excellent cook too ,i have learned everything from her, i used to watch her cook ,though i never cooked at that time as i was busy in studies and my dad always saved me from going in the kitchen by saying that when time will come she will learn ...and exactly that's the truth .Now i am writing a blog on food .Can't Actually imagine myself cooking so many things but still whenever i m in a mess i give a call to my Mom and get some quick tips.
There are lot of recipes which i am gonna post inspired from my Mom.Here is a quick munching Tea time snack which we call Namkeen in India, eating it since my childhood and every1 just ate the whole bowl when its served and is a very healthy option too you can eat it with No guilt.
