Oggrane in kannada means TEMPERING.  A simple way to make an interesting and tasty breakfast!
You can temper puffed rice, beaten rice or leftover rice.

250 gms puffed rice/churmuri
1 onion
2 green chilis
1 tbsp ground nuts
1/4 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard
a pinch of hing/asafoetida
3 tsp oil
pinch of turmeric powder
salt to taste
a sprig curry leaves
chopped coriander leaves

Rinse the puffed rice and keep aside. Heat oil in a pan. Add groundnuts. Add mustard and allow to splutter.
Add jeera/cumin, hing, curry leaves,chopped green chilis and onions. Saute till it becomes transparent. Add turmeric and add the puffed rice. Sprinkle salt and mix well.Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve immediately.

                                               VAGRANE AVALAKKI/  POHA/BEATEN RICE

Follow the same procedure with beaten rice. But after rinsing the beaten rice, keep aside for 10 -15 mins  so that it becomes soft.
