What is Bhel Puri?

Bhel puri is a popular street food snack in Mumbai. A sweet, spicy, and tangy treat, completely Indian in origin with liveliness attached with Chowpatty beach of Mumbai. This street food/chaat can be enjoyed with your loving partners/family while having wonderful moments on the beach. It can surely lift your mood with all those amazing flavors.

Bhel puri is mainly prepared from puffed rice and fried gram flour snacks along with onions, tomatoes, potatoes, tamarind chutney, and other spices. The popularity of bhel puri has made it spread across the country where it is served modified to suit the availability of local ingredients. Another variation of bhelpuri in Bengali cuisine is Jhal muri and there is another popular Mangalorean snack called churmuri.

Ingredients Needed for Bhelpuri

  • Puffed rice: Puffed rice/murmura is the base of bhel puri. It is easily available at Asian grocery stores.
  • Plain Sev: Gram flour savory noodles/plain sev is used in the bhel. I have used homemade plain sev. However, you can also add the Bombay mixture available in the market.

  • Coriander leaves: Fresh coriander leaves to add nice refreshing flavors.
