Indian Street Food – Borugulu 

This is one of the best snacks I know. It’s a great one to take on the go and it’s just so easy to make. There are a million different recipes out there, all using basic Indian spices which most of us have at hand. 


4 cups plain puffed rice

3 cloves of garlic crushed in the skin

3 tbsp coconut oil

3 dried red chilies

1/4 cup dessicated coconut 

1/4 cup chopped cashews

2 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric 

1/2 tsp chili powder

1 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt


  • Heat the coconut oil gently in a large frying pan
  • Add the mustard seeds and dry spices and heat for 1 minute, stirring 
  • Add the whole garlic cloves with the skin on, and the whole dried chilies 
  • Add the cashew nuts, making sure they are coated in the spices
  • Add the dessicated coconut and stir it in well
  • Add the puffed rice, folding it in to the spices and nuts so that it picks up the flavour.
  •  Mix continuously for around 3 minutes on a low heat so that the rice doesn’t burn.

I store mine in a Tupperware at room temperature. I’ve no idea of the shelf life because it disappears so quickly!!!
