    what exactly is vepudu biyyam? can it be made at home by soaking rice, drying and frying it?

    From the picture, it seems vepudu biyyam means marmaralu or murilu(as known in some parts of andhra).
    Its a guess. And pardon me if i am wrong

    @suneetha not mamra or maramaralu. These are not puffed but roasted wet rice.

    not pori = mamra = burugulu
