Bhel Puri

             Bhel Puri is one of the favourite chaat item for the people of all age groups especially for the kids and teenagers.  It is also a treat for the eyes to watch how the chaat wallah makes it. Sold on every street corner in Mumbai, and now widespread in other Indian cities and towns too. Bhel Puri is a wonderful preparation of puffed rice tossed together with a lot of tangy chutneys, aromatic seasonings, crunchy veggies and flavourful garnishes.However it is not advisable to eat outside food frequently. But when it is made at home, it is hygienic and healthy as it includes fresh vegetables. Some also use White channa while making chaats. To make a chaat, we need three main chutneys along with other ingredients.
