Bhelpuri (Spicy Snack)

Bhelpuri is a very tasty snack popular throughout India. Depending on location it acquires a different flavor and taste. Chinese Bhel is also popular in India but has nothing to do with China. It was originally made in India but given the name Chinese bhel to differentiate it from the common bhelpuri.

What you need:
1) Puffed rice 3 cups
2) Potatoes 2 nos - boiled and chopped (not finely)
3) Onion 1 - chopped finely
4) Tomato 1 - chopped finely
5) Green chillies 2 chopped finely
6) Coriander leaves chopped
7) Tamarind chutney 1/2 spoon
8) Green chutney 1 spoon
9) Chaat Masala 1 spoon
10) Fine sev - thick sev can be used but fine sev gives better texture and mixes well
11) Papdi 2-3 (crushed into small pieces)

1) Mix all ingredients in a bowl except puffed rice, sev and chutneys
2) Add chutneys and mix well. Chutney should be as per taste
3) Add puffed rice and mix well
4) Garnish with sev and serve immeditely

It is best to prepare just before eating otherwise the puffed rice will become soggy. For extra flavor add some sliced green mangoes. It will give a tangy taste to it.
