Jhaal Muri - Kolkata puffed rice snack - Street food - Jhal muri recipe

When I first saw it in a restaurant menu some time ago, I asked the server what is this and he said that it was similar to bhel puri but with puri and chutney. When I tasted it, I liked the unique flavour, so I asked him what the unique flavor was and he told me it is from mustard oil. So the next day I searched for mustard oil and brought a small bottle. Even though I can guess the flavors, I searched on the internet for the recipe. I kind mixed from few sites. It tasted great. If you like the flavor of mustard, you should try it out.
