Jhal Muri.

I don't really like boring snacks, because I'm awesome. Potato chips don't cut it for me, and beef jerky has been out of the question since the day I was born. I dusted off my television set and found myself watching the Food Network, and saw a terribly colourful, lovely looking snack a fella in England was making. He was a street food vendor and had a big rad VW van, and the coolest accent to match. This is my take on Jhal Muri, with the original recipe right here!

1 cup puffed rice (Muri)
1/4 cup chickpea flour noodles (Sev)
1/3 cup crushed, toasted nuts - I used peanuts and cashews
1/4 cup fried green lentils
1/2 tomato, chopped

1/2 cup cucumber, chopped1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, chopped
3 tbsp. toasted coconut
1 small shallot, chopped
Fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoon tamarind sauce
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon mustard oil

Mix all dry ingredients. Mix together your liquid ingredients and drizzle or stir into dry mix.

If your city has an East Indian grocery store, GO THERE!
