Mouthwatering Masala Mandakki in 5–10 Minutes!

This spicy teatime snack is an all-time favorite for many. It is the ultimate snack for cold nights while watching television or seeing a public performance. In India, we get masala mandakki in the stalls near the open-air music concerts or public theaters. Many village hotels here serve this dish as an evening snack.

You can easily make this dish at home. Make it right before you want to eat it, as it gets soggy fast. However, you can store the masala and puffed rice separately in airtight containers to avoid letting the puffed rice get soggy. Whenever you desire this snack, simply mix the ingredients together and it will be ready to serve in two minutes!

People sometimes use fried or roasted peanuts, tomatoes, or lemon juice along with the other ingredients. However, keeping this snack simple is the beauty of it!

Let me share the recipe for making a simple masala mandakki.
