Bhel Puri

Bhel Puri

Bhel Puri is a sweet-spicy-tangy appetizer/snack famed all over India. It is prevalent more as a street food, although some restaurants also serve it. I remember, as a student in Fatima Convent School in Goa, it was available to us during recess. It was served on magazine papers and we had to queue in front of one of the two canteen windows. It was made and served by the teachers and some seniors. Luckily I moved to Mumbai after marriage and you all should know that Mumbai is one of the famed places for Chaat 🙂

You will need to make the Garlic Chutney (click here), Green Chutney (click here) and Date-Tamarind Chutney (click here) before you can make the Bhel Puri. So be sure to have them ready.

Also, one should know that there is no specific way one can go about making this. It all depends on one’s tastes and so you should feel free to increase or decrease any of the ingredients mentioned to suit your taste. Consider this recipe for the Bhel as a median for you to tingle with your taste buds.
