Most Loved Breakfast in Harihar - Mandakki ( Puffed Rice )
Have you heard of Puffed Rice - or We call them as Mandakki and northern partner India it is known as Bhelpuri
These are actually made of rice. Making Puffed Rice from Rice is an artistic invention.
- Soak rice in water and make them dry in shade
- Head the sand
- Put the Rice on hot clean sand
Rest you will see Mandakki just like popcorn bursting out of corn seeds 😁
I have seen them doing it as there was a Mandakki Mill on the way to my school (20 yrs back ) so that's best evening show for us.
