Bhelpuri

Bhel puri is a puffed rice dish with potatoes and a tangy tamarind chutney..its a type of chaat particularly identified with Mumbai beach...Bhelpuri is prepared across India with many different names...The ingredients include diced boiled potatoes, tamarind and dates chutney,with sev, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes etc..Bhelpuri was originally from Gujarat and its a fast food item, later they got merged with mumbai culture and became synonymous with Mumbai..There are two popular chutneys are used to prepare this bhelpuri, one is dark sweet chutney made mainly with dates and tamarind and the another one is spicy green chutney made with coriander leaves and green chillies...I went once to Mumbai, but i have tasted few mumbai chaat foods since am a great fan of chaat foods.


2cups Puffed rice
1cup Sev
1/2no Red onion(chopped finely)
1/2no Tomato (chopped finely)
2no Potatoes (boiled and chopped)
1/4cup Cucumber pieces
1/4tsp Chaat Masala
Salt
1/2tsp Sweet chutney (tamarind and dates chutney)
1/2tsp Spicy green chutney (coriander n green chilly chutney)

Mix everything in a large bowl and serve immediately in a small snacks plates... else the juice from tomatoes, cucumber may turns this bhel puri soggy..Enjoy!!!

  20. Hi Priya,

    I am a fan of your recipes.. :)
    One suggestion for your bhelpuri - add lil sugar and lemon. This gives a very good taste. You can add grated carrot and few roasted groundnuts. I made this yesterday and it was awesome.
