Do You Know?

Puffed rice is referred to as mur mure in some parts of India.
It is a type of puffed grain made from rice; usually made by heating rice kernels under high pressure in the presence of steam, though the method of manufacture varies widely.
A traditional way of making Murmura is heating rice in a sand-filled oven just like popcorn.
