How to make Mudhi-Nadia: Recipe for a Completely Vegetarian East Indian Snack

Updated on December 10, 2011

'Mudhi-Nadia' -A Wonderful Snack for a Rainy Afternoon

If it is a raining afternoon and you feel like doing nothing but enjoy looking at the rain, there can be no better way than sitting relaxed on a chair in the balcony and having a bowl of Mudhi Nadia. 'Mudhi' is a local name for puffed rice that can be prepared at home or purchased from the market. Puffed rice is very popular snack stored in almost every house in Orissa in a ready to eat form. While it is also enjoyable to eat even plain puffed rice, people make spicy mouth watering snacks by adding several other ingredients to it. Nadia is a local name for coconut in Orissa.

How to make Mudhi -Nadia

It is quite easy to make mudhi -nadia in 1 minute.

Mudhi or puffed rice: As much you can eat.
A handful of Chanachoor/sev/Namkin
chopped onion (small amount)
Chopped Chili (1or 2 depending on taste)
A pinch of salt (plain or spicy salt as you prefer)
A few drops of mustard oil
Coriander leaves finely chopped
Grated Coconut (1/4th of a whole tomato)

Process of Making

Its very simple to make Mudhi -Nadia. Add all the ingredients in the bowl together and mix well before eating. I prefer to have this with a mug of black coffee without sugar.

      I love Indian food because there are so many vegetarian options and they are never boring, always spicy or with flavor. Thanks for sharing this, I'll have to try it some day.
