Spicy Bhel puri

Bhelpuri  is a puffed rice dish with potatoes and a tangy tamarind sauce. It is a type of chaat or small plates of savory snacks, particularly identified with the beaches of Mumbai ,such as Chowpatty.

Bhelpuri is prepared across India, and may be known by different names - Churu Muri in Bangalore, Jhaal Muri in Kolkata (meaning "hot puffed rice") is different in that it does not use any tamarind-based chutney in the mix. The ingredients include diced boiled potatoes, chutney dal, coriander powder, grated coconut, and mustard oil.

Bhelpuri was originally a Gujarati fast food. It later got merged with Mumbai culture and became synonymous with Mumbai. Bhelpuri is best consumed as soon as it is made. If left for a while, the juices from the tomatoes, chutneys, etc. combine to render the sev and mamra soggy.
