Bhel Puri & Inspiration Award

Bhel puri is a mixture of different savory ingredients, put together and then tart tamarind date chutney, green cilantro-mint chutney is drizzled on this mixture and served fresh. I have used ready to use haldiram's bhelpuri pack to make this snack, rather than buying all the ingredients separately. In addition to the ingredients in the packet, other fresh ingredients are put in.


One 200 gram packet - Haldiram's bhel puri
1/2 cup - Beaten rice

1/2 cup - Besan boondi / Masala boondi
1/2 cup -
Aloo bhujia
1/2 cup - Red onion, chopped small

1 medium size - Tomato, chopped small
1/2 of a - Cucumber, chopped small

1 big - Potato, boiled and cubed

1/2 cup - Coriander leaves, chopped
1 to 2 tsp -
Chaat masala powder
1/4 tsp -
Garam masala powder
1 tsp - Lemon juice
Salt to taste


Tamarind date chutney

Green chutney


1 ) Lightly roast beaten rice in a pan and let it cool. Into a big mixing bowl, add haldiram's bhel puri. The packet has a masala packet, out of which you can make chutney. And also a sev packet. Empty the sev into the bowl. Then add roasted beaten rice, boondi, aloo bhujia, onion, tomato, boiled potato, cucumber, coriander leaves and lemon juice.

2 ) Sprinkle chaat masala powder, garam masala, salt to taste, toss and mix all the ingredients together. Now when ready to serve, add tamarind chutney, green chutney, the chutney that came in the packet, as to one's taste.

Serve and have it fresh.
