Murmura Poha Recipe


Murmura poha aka puffed rice poha recipe, learn how to make puffed rice poha. An instant 15 mins breakfast recipe for busy people especially for hostel students and working women. This murmura recipe is easy to make and ideal to include in weight loss diet, thyroid and pcos diet as I am using unrefined murmura hence it has more fibre. Plus using murmura made from traditional varieties of rice is always ideal for better nutrient absorption.

I like to use traditional varieties of rice and related products in my recipes which is very less processed as I always feel I am more satiated after the meal. Its the fibre content which helps to keep me fuller for a longer time. I also like to throw in some nuts and seeds to make it more protein rich.


2 cups murmura (made from mappila samba rice)

1 to 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil (wood pressed)

3 tbsp raw peanuts

2 tbsp roasted chana dal

1/2 tsp jeera

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 inch ginger

4 garlic cloves

1 onion, chopped

1 green chilli, chopped

1 tsp pink himalayan salt

whole red chilies

1 carrot, grated

curry leaves

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

juice of half a lemon

coriander leaves


Adding lemon juice helps in absorption especially if you have gut issues.

 The murmura I used does take a little bit longer to soak.

You can source the murmura online.
