Chira Bhaja / Fry Flattened Rice

chira bhaja


Making chanachur reminds me Chira Bhaja / Fry Flattened Rice. I used least amount of ingredients and love flavour. Some of us can say to use more ingredients. But to me less is more. If you want, you fry peanut and flattened rice together. But I prefer to do separately to make it perfect. If you are buying flattened rice from Bangladesh, make sure there is no sand in it ( we are not washing it )So enjoy authentic Bangladeshi (without any doubt) munchies and I am pretty sure that your kids will love it too.


  • 1 and ½ cup flattened rice(chira)
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 1/3 cup peanuts with skin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt(table salt preferable )
  • 1/8 teaspoon black salt (bit lobon)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (for peanuts)
  • ¼ teaspoon chilli powder
