Sookha Bhel/ Dry Bhel Recipe

Bhelpuri is one of the most popular street food in Mumbai. It’s a mixture of puffed rice, onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves and the green, red and tamarind chutney. Recipe for the same is listed under the Chaat section of this blog. The other version of this popular street food is Sookha Bhel where no Chutneys are added and the mixture is left dry. Sookha means dry. I prefer mine with a dash of green chutney, just enough to lend it some spice.Ingredients:

  • One boiled potato
  • One large onion
  • One tomato
  • Coriander leaves
  • Salt
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • A pinch of Everest Chaat Masala
  • Sev
  • Puffed rice as required
  • Green chutney

Method:Deskin quarter and slice the boiled potatoes thinly. Chop the tomatoes, onions and Coriander leaves also fine. Tip all the vegetables into a bowl. Add the lemon juice, Chaat Masala and a pinch of salt. Tip in a tsp of the green chutney and mix thoroughly. Add as much puffed rice as it can hold. The mixture should not be too dry . Garnish with Sev and serve immediately.
