Bhel Puri / ಭೇಲ್ ಪುರಿ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Whenever I prepare Bhel Puri at home, it resembles us the memories of chaat shop where we used to go every alternative day. There was a chaat shop near our house and we used to have some junk food while returning from office. We were well known to him, and he used to give us the parcel quickly even when there is a long queue! We both were the fans of Bhel Puri which he used to prepare. After shifting from that area, we tasted Bhel Puri at so many places, but didn't find that taste anywhere else. 
I will prepare Bhel Puri occasionally when I feel like having something at home. Bhel Puri should be eaten immediately once it is ready. Also, better to use the freshly chopped tomato, carrot, etc. veggies to get better results ;)
Preparation Time: 15 - 20 minutes
Servings: 2

Puffed rice (churumuri) - 1 plate full
Tomato - 1/2 of a big one
1 medium size onion
Carrot - 1/2
Coriander leaves - 1/4 bunch
Red chilli powder - 1/2 spoon (adjust according to taste)
Chaat masala - 3/4 spoon (adjust according to taste)
Salt to taste
Roasted / deep fried groundnut - 1/4 cup
Papri 2 - 3

Keep the puffed rice under the sun for an hour or heat them on a heavy bottom pan for couple of minutes to make them crispy.
Chop the tomato, onion and coriander leaves finely. Grate the carrot. Don't keep them chopped for longer time.
Transfer the puffed rice onto the mixing bowl; press them with palms and crush it little-bit. 
Add salt, chilli powder, chaat masala, grated carrot, chopped onion, tomato and coriander leaves and mix it well. Check and adjust the taste.
Finally, add the groundnuts and crushed Papri and mix it thoroughly.
Transfer the Bhel Puri into the serving bowl and decorate with generous amount of sev.
