Instant Bhel Puri


Last week I had a kitty party at home for my colony friends and we had a blast. Every month, a new host is chosen to throw a party. What we basically do is snack, play games and of course there are prizes for the games and all in all we have a good time just being around with friends. It’s really a nice way to unwind every month.

My cousin Ramya gave me these wonderful ideas for snacks. I prepared Bhel puri, Papdi chat, Pani puri. This is so easy that if you have all the ingredients at home, you can make it any time. A good choice for bachelors too!

Ingredients:
Puffed Rice – 3 cups
Carrots – 2 grated
Onions – 2 finely chopped
Tomatoes – 2 finely chopped (Mix tomatoes and onions with some lime juice and keep aside)
Halved Groundnuts – store bought which is already coated with spices
Papdi – 7-8 (store bought)
Sev – a handful for each plate

For the chutneys:
Dates chutney for the sweet chutney
You can use store bought green chutney powder. All you have to do is mix the powder with water.

Mix all the above ingredients along with some salt. Garnish with coriander leaves and sev on each plate.

Don’t make it early and keep this because it can get soggy. Keep all the ingredients ready, but mix them only when you are ready to eat! Hope you enjoy trying this and eating it too!
