In the world of low-calorie snacks, puffed rice holds a special place. Finding its dedicated space in some of the most comforting regional snacks, puffed rice has been associated with some of our most loved food memories. It is an intrinsic part of thejhalmuris, bhelpuris, churmuras and the famous chaats of every region. The beauty of this humble ingredient lies in the fact that it is very versatile and can easily be incorporated in creating a range of delicacies.

Though puffed rice is not really nutritionally rich, it is light on the stomach and low in calories. Ladoos made of puffed rice are also quite filling and are among one of the most loved sweet treats of the country. Puffed rice is a good source of carbohydrates and fibre and can be a great snacking option for people who are trying to lose weight. However, it is a high glycemic food item and gets digested very quickly which means that it may end up making you feel hungry again.
