How to make bhel / bhelpuri
Bhelpuri is one of the very famous street snacks in india. It is type of chat and quick to make.Bhel means mixing in Hindi ,so its mixing with puri.Puri used in bhelpuri is specially made for making chats.Chats are very tempting and must have street snacks.Chats are made and served in almost all parts of india.
For making bhelpuri there are many different recipes followed. And there is no specific set of ingredients or proportion as well. By mixing chat and farsan ingredients tasty bhelpuri can be made. It dosen't required direct cooking but ingredients used in bhelpuri need to be cooked separately. Like puri used in bhelpuri can be made or brought from market as its available ready made.If you want to use ragada (White chana cooked with salt and selected spices) It has to be cooked. Sev (Savory cracker made from chickpeas flour) can be made at home or is available at stores as well.
Whatever might be other ingredients two things are mandatory for making bhelpuri and that are green(Spicy) chutaney and sweet (date +tamrind or jaggery +tamrind ) chutaey.
Tomato,onions,green chilies,grated carrots ,grated cucumber also can be used to mix in bhelpuri and making it extra nutritious.
I have used all easily available at home ingredients for following bhelpuri recipe.Though these ingredients keep on changing as per availability every time i make this tangy, sour and sweet snacks.
