Bhel puri is a roadside popular chat/ snack in India. Though Pani poori/ Gol gappa is more famous than this chat...kids always prefer this yummy chat. As a kid I always preferred this more than Pani poori, the reason being that to eat pani poori, one has to gobble the whole poori at one time :-) and being a kid, it was hard for me to do that :) So, whenever my family would go out to eat Chat, I always preferred to order bhel puri. In the meantime, I have also learned to gobble the whole puri of pani puri now :) Now, I love both the chats equally.
Anyways, coming to the recipe...it has different variation in different parts of India. Some people like to add boiled and cubed potatoes into it, and some even add raw mango to it....one can try any variation a per their preferences..here is how I do mine.
3 cups of puffed rice,
1/2 cup of roasted peanuts,
1 finely chopped onion,
1/2 cucumber-peeled and finely chopped,
1 tomato-de-seeded and finely chopped,
1 carrot-peeled and grated,
1 tbsp of chat masala,
1/2 cup of Sev,
1 tsp of lemon/lime juice,
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves,
2-3 tbsp of tamarind chutney,
1 tbsp of spicy green chutney and
salt to taste.
In a large bowl put the puffed rice, chopped tomatoes, chopped onion, cucumber,roasted peanuts, grated carrot, half of the sev and mix well. Now add the chat masala, a pinch of salt, 1 tbsp of green chutney, 2 tbsp of tamarind chutney, finely chopped coriander leaves and lemon juice. garnish with e remaining sev and tamarind chutney.Mix the ingredients and serve immediately. If prepared in advance, the puffed rice will become soft and soggy so, mix the ingredients together, just before serving.
