BM# 68-Cooking Carnival: Day 13
Theme of Week 3: Vegetables in Snacks
Dish: Mixed Vegetable Bhelpuri
Bhelpuri is a popular street food/ chaat from Mumbai that is made with puffed rice, sev, boiled potatoes, onions, sweet chutney and mint chutney. It is sweet, tangy, salty and spicy -- all at the same time. It is crunchy and crispy from the sev, papdi and puffed rice. It is a very tasty snack indeed.
This version has the same flavors and textures of the traditional version but is jazzed up with colorful veggies like corn, cucumber, tomatoes, peas etc. The sweet corn we get here tastes great as is, without boiling, but boil the corn if the corn is a little tough.
Puffed rice gets very soggy very quickly. So get everything ready but mix them with the puffed rice just a few minutes before serving. Sprinkle some thin sev on top and crushed papdis and Enjoy!!
