Easy Healthy Evening Snacks: Puffed Rice Namkeen &Garlic Grilled Corn

Food Recipes, Snacks

For evening cravings, two very easy recipes that can be made with a cup of tea or coffee. I was surprised how quick they are with bare minimum ingredients.

Puffed Rice Namkeen


  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp kashimiri mirch
  • 1/4 tsp red chilly powder
  • Salt, chaat masala to taste
  • 3-4 chopped curry leaves
  • Peanuts
  • 1 cup Puffled rice (Murmura)
  • 1/2 cup Flat rice (Poha)


  • In a pan put oil, heat at medium flame, add turmeric, kashmiri mirch, chilly powder, curry leaves, flat rice, peanuts & roast it.
  • Add puffed rice, salt, chaat masala & mix well. Done 😀


Initially I used mustard seeds, you can avoid it. Tastes better without it.

Garlic Grilled Corn


  • 2 Medium sized corns
  • 2 tbsp butter & olive oil
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chilly powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Chopped garlic/ Garlic Salt


  • In a bowl mix butter, oil, garlic, salt, pepper, chilly powder, oregano.
  • Brush the corns with the mixture
  • Pre-heat oven at 350F & bake for 25 mins. Done 😀


You can roast the corns by baking it at broil mode for 2-3 minutes to give an extra crunchy texture.
