kara-pori-beach-style
          I have eaten kara pori that is dry with chilli powder, peanuts and garlic that they sell in Salem as ‘ Kara pori’, both buying it as well as my mom makes it very often for evening snack time. But this one is very new to me and I have not personally tasted this. My Co-sis is very very crazy about this pori and she just loves it a lot more than anything! Though I have been in Chennai for an year and visited lots of time before marriage, never bought anything from beach to eat. Even now, every year when I visit Chennai, we always go to Besant Nagar beach at least once. Vj and my BILs like to have the roasted corn (Sutta solam) but my co-sis bought this one and enjoyed!(I rather like to watch the waves (which I miss in SG) and wet my feet in the water, hehe). Last year when we went to beach, my co-sis ran to the vendor who sells this and bought it to eat.
     Then few days back, when I was having conversation with her in FB, asked her about it to try myself at home and see how it is. After all the person who loves it so much and eat it knows exactly how it is made and how it tastes right? So asked her and yes, she could tell each and every ingredient as I guessed. So this post is for her… Big Hug. Here you go girl… Thanks so much for sharing! And you too can make it at home, whenever you feel like Happy.

Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 0 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients


Pori/ Puffed rice  1 & 1/2 cup 
Boiled Peanuts  1/2 cup 
Carrot, Finely Chopped  3 tblsp

beach-style-kara-pori-kadalai

Method

  1. If you are using fresh peanuts, just boil/ pressure cook it with salt and drain water set aside. If using the dried ones, soak for 2-3 hours and then proceed the same way. Finely chop all the veggies and set aside. In a large bowl, place pori and add all the other ingredients except lemon and mix well. 1-kara-pori
  2. Lastly squeeze in the lemon and toss well. Check for salt, spice and tanginess, everything should be balanced!2-kara-pori

Notes

    • Mix everything at the time when you are going to eat/ serve.
    • Adjust the lemon so that it balances the chilli powder. The lemon flavour and taste is supposed to dominate.
    • I din’t add mango as its out of season, but it will give a nice flavour, do add if you can.
    • Adjust salt, lemon and red chilli powder according to your taste.

Who wants this tangy, spicy ‘Beach style’ Kara pori? Love Struck
