by one and all, this one is a savoury dish found
on every street of North India. Does not require
too much time and is perfect for a picnic menu or
an evening time snack! Method 1. Set aside
1/2 cup sev and add all other ingredients to a
wide bowl. 2. Using a wide spoon or spatula, mix
thoroughly until all ingredients are combined
fully. The most important step is right after
this taste testing! Adjust ingredients
according to how spicy, sour, sweet you want your
bhel puri to be. 3. Finally, add the reserved
sev and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. I
love sev so I use a generous hand when garnishing
my bhel puri. 4. Serve immediately, otherwise
the bhelpuri will get soggy. If making for a
large group, mix the ingredients in batches to
ensure freshness and crispness of the sev and
puffed rice.
