Bhel Puri Recipe/ How to make Bhel Puri

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Bhelpuri is a Savoury snack which is best had during a rainy season. Chaat never actually requires a particular time though. Bhel puri is made out of puffed rice, mixture of vegetables and two types of chutneys. One of the quick and instant recipe for a small hunger craving. Though chaat is originated from Bombay, its widened across the world and we see many chaat corners abroad. I personally am a very big fan of Chaat and can eat at any given time. I never say no to chaat and ice-creams ๐Ÿ™‚

Bhel puri can be of two versions. One is dry (sukha bhel) and the other is wet bhel puri. Sukha bhel puri is made without adding hari chutney or tamarind ย chutney. Adding onions and tomatoes is also optional in that. In wet type bhel we add both these chutneys and mix everything well. Though most of the ingredients remain same in both the methods, the taste differs ๐Ÿ™‚ Give a try and you will know ๐Ÿ™‚

This bhel puri which I’ve penned down today is wet version bhel puri. I have added imli and hari chutney both. First I made a mixture of onion and tomato and lightly mashed it so that tomatoes releases its juices which in turn helps the puffed rice to coat very well. This recipe is really very easy and a little fluctuation in the ingredients is permitted. Like I have used roasted chana dal and roasted peanuts. If you do not find them you can exclude them from the recipe.

ย  ย  ย Part 1 : Make a base tangy sauce

Part 1 : Make a baseย tangy sauce

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add chopped onion, tomatoes, red chilli powder,chaat masala, hari chutney, imli chutney, lemon juice, salt and sugar.
  2. Mash it gently with a spatula till the tomatoes release its juices

Part 2 : Mixing

  2. Mix gently till everything is incorporated well.

Tips:

  • The main tip for this is to serve them immediately.
  • If you have guests for a high tea, You can make the base tangy sauce and keep it ready. When guests arrive, you will just have to add rest of the dry ingredients, mix well and serve ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Always use red and ripe tomatoes only
  • You can also add boiled potatoes to the mixture. Street vendors usually add them ๐Ÿ™‚
  • You also can add grated carrots.
  • Adjust the red chilli powder quantity accordingly
  • You can also add finely chopped green chillies and mix. That gives an additional kick to the spice ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I have used store bought papdis. You can also make papdis in home. I shall make them soon and write ๐Ÿ™‚
