Jhal Muri

"Jhal Muri" is a crispy, tangy, spicy,light and healthy, freshly made street snack from Kolkata. As Vada pav is to Mumbai so is Jhal muri to Kolkata. "Jhal" means hot and "Muri" means Murmura or Puffed rice.
Having grown up in Kolkata, Jhal muri is very special for me and an anytime snack which takes me down memory lane.
  
Ingredients
Muri /Murmura (Puffed rice) - 2 cups
Chana Chur -1/2 cup
Sev (bengal gram vermicelli) -4 tablespoon
Peanuts, rosted - 4 tablespoon
Fresh Coconut, grated or finely chopped - 2 tablespoon
Potato, boiled and chopped - 1 medium
Tomato, finely chopped - 1 small
Onion, finely chopped - 1 small
Cucumber, finely chopped - 1/2
Green chilli, finely chopped - 1
Fresh Coriander leaves, finely chopped - 1 tablespoon
Roasted cumin coriander powder - 2 teaspoon
Chat masala - 1 teaspoon
Fresh lemon juice - 1 table spoon
Black salt -1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Mustard oil - 1 teaspoon

Method

"Jhal Muri"
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and add the tomatoes, onion, potato, coconut, cucumber,green chillis, green coriander. Add mustard oil, lemon juice, roasted cumin and coriender masala,chat masala, black salt. Taste and if required you could add regular table salt as per taste.

Serve immediately in bowls or paper cones.

Note:
Chana chur is a spicy indian snack made with gathya, papdi, mix lentels, peanuts etc. Also known as Bombay Mix.
Do not keep this after mixing as the Puffed rice tends to get soggy and would not taste the same.
Also do not replace the Mustard oil with any other oil as it is the key ingredient.
