Bhel Puri (Mumbai Bhel Puri / Spicy Puffed Rice)

Hi everyone ! Today’s recipe is ‘Bhel Puri’.ย Bhel puri is also a form of chaat, it is made of puffed rice, papdi, spicy and tangy chutneys, namkeen/nylon sev (noodles shaped fried snack made out of gram flour) and vegetables. It is very closely associated with Mumbai and its beaches. Some other variants of bhel puri are jhaal muri (Kolkata) and churmuri (Bangalore).


Bhel puri is my favourite snack. I can have this yummy snack at any time of the day, yes I sometimes feel like having it early in the morning as my breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› In this recipe instead of using green chutney I used thatย same paste which I usedย for preparingย pani puri spicy water.
