Bhel Puri

Bhel puri  is a savory Indian snack made out of puffed rice, papdi, sev, crunchy  veggies , tangy  sauces and addition of raw mango (finely chopped) in bhel puri enhances the flavor. My family  always love having this for snack or for dinner.. Healthy easy to prepare, perfect in taste and spice just  loved it..Just follow the recipe and make your own bhel Puri in few minutes...


Puffed rice/ murmura - 2 cups ( for making the masala murmura u need 1-2 tblsp oil, 1 tsp mustard seeds, handful curry leaves, asafoetida, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1tsp chilli powder, this procedure is completely optional but I bet u will love  after making bhel with these masala coated bhel))

Green chutney - 2 tsp
Tamarind and date chutney - 3-4 tbsp
Onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Tomato - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Coriander Leaves - 1/4 cup finely chopped
Lemon juice - as per requirement
Chaat masala - 1 tsp
madras mix mixture (Optional)
Roasted Peanuts  - 1/4th cup
raw mango- 2 tblsp finely chopped (If it is a mango season otherwise u can skip it)
Papdi - 8-10 nos broken roughly
Boiled potato (Optional) - 1 cup chopped into chunks
Sev - 1/2 cup


Heat 2 tblsp oil a big Kadhai or pan. Add mustard seeds when they starts crackling add the curry leaves, asafoetida, turmeric powder, chilli powder and immediately add bhel. Saute for 5-6 min on a low- medium flame till the masalas are well coated with the bhel. Now switch off the flame and let it cool completely.
 I Like my bhel in this way..The strong smell of asafoetida and the crispiness of bhel is just irresistible. 

Take a large bowl so that you shall be able to mix all the ingredients.

Add murmura , peanuts, papadi, madras mix, lemon juice,chaat masala ,chopped onions, tomatoes, raw mangoes and coriander leaves and mix well. 
 add diced boiled potatoes. Now add green chutney and tamarind chutney. Just remember, the tamarind chutney should be thick, not watery. Mix them well. Now sprinkle some sev on the top.
Serve immediately . Enjoy your homemade bhel Puri..Yummm....
