Rice Crispy Jhal Muri

March 20, 2013


A quick weeknight meal, a take on popular street food from India. Chaat is a form of street food usually sold at road side stalls, and has found it’s way into restaurants as well due to its popularity. My favorite chaat dish is ‘Jhaal Muri’ which means Spicy (hot) Puffed Rice. My version has a lot more vegetables and legumes than the traditional one, so it makes for a hearty meal.
What You Need

  • 1/2 can black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup shelled edamame
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joes soycutash
  • 2 Trader Joe’s lightly salted rice cakes
  • 1/4 jalapeño
  • 1 Tblsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/2 a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste, if needed
  • How it’s done
    Mince the jalapeño. Crumble the rice cakes. Defrost the frozen edamame and Soycutash. Mix everything together. Enjoy! The heat from the jalapeño gives this dish the “Jhaal”, the crunch from the rice cakes, the tang from the lime juice, help being all the flavors together.
