A classic street food of Bhel Puri - a combination of puffed rice and raw vegetables topped with green chutney and tamarind chutney and finally garnished with coriander and sev
Mumbai Style Bhel Puri recipe is a simple and fast snack made from puffed rice combined with a variety of raw salad ingredients. Bhel Puri is most often made with just basic ingredients like tomatoes, potatoes, cucumber, onions, some chutneys, sev and papdi. Puffed Rice is also called as mumra or moodi or pori in different parts of india can be combined with a variety of ingredients making it tangy and spicy.
Bhel puri was originally a Gujarati fast food now synonymous as Indian street food. Bhel puri is best consumed as soon as it is made. If left for a while, the juices from the tomatoes, chutneys, etc. combine to render the sev and puffed rice soggy. Much of the fun of eating Bhel Puri is in the crunchiness.
Serve the Bhel Puri along with a Dahi Gujiya Recipe as a tea time evening snack for the weekends. It can even make a quick and light weeknight dinner.
