Jhalmuri (Bengali: ঝালমুড়ি) is a street snack originating from the Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent, made of puffed rice and an assortment of spices, vegetables, and chanachur or bhujia. It is especially popular in Bangladesh and the eastern regions of India.

It is very easy to prepare jhalmuri, it can be prepared with easily available ingredient and you can add as many as thing of your choice to add flavour. I prepared its bengal version.
For making jhalmuri we need crispy fried peanuts, and boiled cubes of potato. In vegetable we need roughly chopped onion and tomato, handful or coriander leaves and finely chopped green chilli.
In spices I added amchoor powder, cumin powder, red chilli powder, black salt and salt and the secret ingredient that is used in Kolkata jhalmuri is mustered oil. Lastly added lime juice for tangy flavour, puffed rice and bhujiya sev. If puffed rice is not enough crispy you can always dry roast them.
As soon as you mixed all ingredients serve them immediately, because moisture from vegetable turn puff rice and sev to soggy and they don’t taste good without crunchiness.
