One of my favorite time pass is to munch on puffed rice.Roasted or plain -this is a munchy delight that goes well with a cup of coffee/ tea and a thriller!So when I saw this recipe of kichidi with puffed rice in Nayna's blog with whom I am paired for this week's edition of Blog Hop Wednesday, I wanted to make this for sure.
