Bhel Puri

For a quick summertime snack, which can spare me from slaving at the stove I can think of nothing more healthy, delicious and satisfying as Bhel Puri. I normally have Coriander Chutney and Tamarind-Date Chutney in the fridge so this is a breeze to prepare.


BHEL PURI

Ingredients

Puffed Rice (Pori) - 3 to 4 cups (or more to taste)
Potato - 1 medium, boiled, peeled, refrigerated for an hour & cubed
Cucumber - 1, diced
Tomato - 1, diced
Onion - 1, diced
Green chillies - 3, finely chopped
Channa (white) - 1/2 cup, soaked and cooked with salt (or canned)
Chaat Masala - a couple pinches or to taste
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp
Salt - to taste
Tamarind - Date chutney
Coriander/Green Chutney
Sev - to serve
Coriander leaves - 3 to 4 tbsp, chopped

Method:
1) Combine onion, tomato, cucumber, potato, green chillies, coriander leaves and channa in a big bowl. Toss with salt, chaat masala & Garam masala.

2) Just before serving, add the puffed rice (pori) with the coriander and tamarind-date chutneys and mix. Taste and adjust seasonings.

3) Scoop into a serving bowl and top with crunchy sev. Delicious Bhel puri is now ready to savour.
