Chira Bhaja / Fry Flattened Rice

  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. Ingredients: 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       How to make: Add oil in a pan on medium and when oil is ready, add flattened rice and salt.

Chanachur

Chanachur

    I was thinking to make Chanachur for my daughter (it’s kinda her staple food) and I found that It will my 200th post. For 200th post chanachur will be perfect. Chanachur is the most popular crispy snack in Bangladesh. Though you can find same kind of crisp in other countries (bhuja, bhujia, soy crisp, chickpeas noodle, sev etc), Bangladeshi Chanachur has its own place for its taste and flavour. But usually we don’t make it at home. For professional chanachur making we need certain type chanachur making machine (kind of chakli maker). As usual I don’t have the machine, I take great courage to make Chanachur at home and simply love result. Hope you will love it too. Thanks all my facebook group mates for their lovely suggestions. Thanks to all readers for giving me continuous inspiration and don’t forget to like my facebook page or join my facebook group for keeping touch with me.
