To all chaat lovers, this recipe is for you! Jhal muri is a popular street food widely enjoyed around India, though it originated in West Bengal. Jhal means spicy, and muri means puffed rice. Jhal muri is a spicy puffed rice snack that is loved by all. It just takes 15 minutes to prepare Jhal muri. Puffed rice, roasted peanuts, namkeen/mixture, boiled potatoes, chopped tomatoes, onions, cucumber, coriander, and a few other essential ingredients are used to make this.

Spice it up with Alco Jhal Muri Masala to bring that authentic Kolkata flavor to your Jhal Muri. It will give an aromatic blend and add a spicy-chatpata flavor like street chat.


Take a big mixing bowl and pour in 1.5 cups of muri/puffed rice/murmure (whatever you like). Add 1/2 cup namkeen/mixture (any of your choice). Finely chop one cucumber, tomato, onion, and boiled potato. Add 2-3 green chilies (if you don't like spicy, you can skip it). Also, 1/3 cup of roasted peanuts will bring the street-style taste. 

Now sprinkle 2/3 tsp salt (as per taste) and add 2 tbsp of Alco's Jhal-muri masala to get the original Kolkata chat flavor in your Jhal-Muri. Spread 2 tbsp of mustard oil into the mix and add a handful of chopped coriander leaves. Add 1/3 cup Sev (use the tiny ones) and squeeze in 1/2 lemon juice. Give everything a good mix again, so the masala is spread evenly in the jhal-muri. 

Serve immediately, before the murmure is soiled, and enjoy the chatpata flavor of street food at home.
