Bhel Puri | Bhel Chaat | Street food

Bhel Puri , one of the most famous chaat items made with puffed rice and it's quite popular in the beaches across India. To be honest, i'm not big fan of this chaat items, but ST likes it so much, so for his sake, i make them once in a while whenever i have all the ingredients in hands. After making the dahi papdi chaat, i had some left over chutneys, papdi and sev, so  the next day itself i made this bhel puri as evening snack along with tea. ST liked it so much and even i too had few spoons and it was really delicious.Before check out the recipe, if you want to know what i have prepared for yesterday under "Street food" theme, here it is
