Muri, also known as murmura, is a popular food item in various parts of South Asia, particularly in India, Bangladesh, and Nepal. It is made from rice grains that are heated under high pressure, causing them to expand and puff up. 

about the muri

Loosely translated as puffed rice, muri is traditionally made by hot sand-frying.This one here is made from Hingche Lebu rice, an indigenous variety from Bankura that is generally used for muri production. The result is a light, crispy, and airy textured snackable pantry staple that serves as a key ingredient in many street foods and traditional recipes.
