Soak the puffed rice in water for 5 mins.
Meantime, prepare the tempering. Add oil to a broad pan. When oil is hot, throw in mustard seeds, cumin seeds, urad & gram dals. When dals turn golden, add peanuts & saute till peanuts turn golden brown.
Throw in the curry leaves & green chillies, followed by onion & turmeric.
Saute till the onion becomes transparent & changes color.
Squeeze out the water from the puffed rice (Just draining the water isn't sufficient, try to squeeze as much water as possible). Puffed rice would have become soft by now.
Add the puffed rice to the tempering. Mix in salt & sugar.Let it cook on a low heat for a minute or two.
Add the roasted channa dal powder/hurigadale pudi to it & mix it well.
