This is an example of Indian street food.  It is a combination of sweet, spicy, salty, pungent, and sour flavors.  This is traditionally made with puffed crispy white rice, but as per the style of EatFree cooking, I’ve replaced that with crispy brown rice cereal.


  • 2 tablespoons mustard oil
  • Juice of half a lime
  • ¼ teaspoon chaat masala
  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup peanuts, roasted
  • 1 small white or red onion, finely diced
  • 1 serrano, finely diced
  • 1/3  cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2.5 cups crispy brown rice cereal


  1. Whisk together mustard oil, lime, chaat masala, and salt.  Set aside.
  2. Combine all other ingredients.  Toss in dressing right before serving (otherwise it will get soggy.)  Enjoy!
