Dear fellow bloggers, I am very happy to announce "Healthy Recipe Hunt" event. I am fan of healthy recipes which are both tasty and nutritious. I am planning to conduct this event every month with varying themes. For this month the theme of the event is Puffed Rice.
Puffed rice is a very popular cereal relished as a spicy and healthy snack. Puffed rice is a type of puffed grain made from rice; usually made by heating rice kernels under high pressure in the presence of steam, though the method of manufacture varies widely.
Puffed rice is used in breakfast and snack foods like bhel puri, a popular Indian chaat item.Also, this snack makes you feel full for a long time.
Puffed Rice based snacks are good instant cooking. Also if you're a health consicious, you'll love puffed rice based snacks as Puffed Rice is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, and sodium.
