This is my 50th post, feeling happy to share my recipes with you. Hope you all like it 😍. Today's recipe is Rayalaseema special Uggani/vagani and bajji. Uggani is prepared using puffed rice. Puffed rice is also known as borugulu/maramarlu in Telugu, Mandalu in Kannada, pori in Tamil. It is regularly prepared in our kitchen for breakfast, snacks and for tiffin box. It is very easy to prepare, it is sold in every Rayalaseema hotels-morning as breakfast and as snack in evening. Mirchi bajji(mirapakaya bajji in telugu) is good combination for uggani.

◆ Mirchi I used is very spicy so I used very less, you can increase or decrease the quantity as per you wish. 

◆ Adjust lemon juice as per you taste.


● Do not soak puffed rice long time, it will become too soft. 

● Do not mix the puffed rice too hard it will become paste.
