That is the beauty of our country. Well, in the upcoming posts, not only you will read about all the Street foods from different parts of the country but also how it is prepared and the uniqueness of it.
Today, we will start with the easy to make, slight sweet, tangy, spicy BHEL PURI.
What is Bhel Puri? - Bhel Puri is a popular savoury snack with complex flavours supposed to be originated in Mumbai. It is a type of chaat made with puffed rice, finely chopped tomatoes, onions, potatoes, sev, spicy green chutney and tangy, sweet tamarind chutney garnished with freshly chopped Coriander leaves.
Bhel Puri is quite popular in the beach areas as it is a go-to munching snack. You can take a stroll alongside the beach and enjoy the Bhel with your friends and family. A very good option for small hunger pangs or even when you want to take light dinner. We often make it at home also - easy to make, delicious on palate and quick to digest.
