I have used all these three types of chutneys to prepare the Mumbai bhel puri. Many people skip Red chutney for the preparation. Instead of it, they add some extra garlic and green chillies into the Green Chutney and use it. But the addition of Red Chutney makes the taste and flavour of the Bhel recipe divine. I have shared the details of these three Chutney recipe for Chaat here, in the ‘Instruction’ section, to make things easier for you.

How to keep Bhel puri crispy for a long while?

To prepare this Indian snack recipe the most common problem that people face is that the Bhel puri | Bhelpuri | Bhel poori gets soggy. To make a crispy wet bhel few things need to be taken care of.

  • Always use crispy Puffed rice or Murmure for the recipe. You can even dry roast the puffed rice in medium flame for some time to make it crispier.
  • Always add wet ingredients at the end of preparing the Bhel puri recipe.
  • Use chutneys of thick consistency for better taste and texture. Runny chutneys make the Bhelpuri soggy.
  • Don’t add excess Chutneys into the Bhel puri recipe.
  • Mixing all the ingredients of Bhel puri must be done very quickly. The more time that you take to prepare it, the sooner the puffed rice will gradually become soft and soggy.
  • Always serve the Bhel Puri immediately after preparing it without wasting any time.

Bhel puri how to make

To prepare Bhel puri, it is very important to assemble all the ingredients before you start plating it.

Whenever I plan to prepare Recipe for Bhel puri, first I prepare three types of chutneys for chaat a day before preparing it and refrigerate them. This makes the recipe handy and reduces the effort.

For the recipes of Chaat, I also prepare the papdi at home. Though Papdi is readily available in the market, but I always prefer homemade papdi over market packaged ones. It makes the Bhel poori crispier and healthier. The Papdis can be stored in an airtight container for around 4 weeks. You can check the Papdi recipe in my previous post.

On the day of preparing the Chaat recipe, I have boiled potatoes, peeled off the skin and cut it into small cubes. I have pressure cooked the potatoes in water for two whistles to boil it. Then I have finely chopped onions, tomatoes and coriander leaves.

I have used crispy puffed rice or Murmure for the recipe. So, I have not dry roasted it before using for Bhelpuri.

First, I have taken a large mixing bowl to prepare the Bhel puri recipe. Then I have added puffed rice, all the veggies, sev, farsan, roasted peanuts, broken papdis and spices, one by one into it and mixed it well. After that, I have added all the wet ingredients like lemon juice, Red Chutney, Green Chutney, Sweet Tamarind Chutney one by one into the bowl and mixed it quickly.

Then I have immediately transferred the Bhel Puri on a plate and sprinkle some extra Sev, Roasted peanuts, chopped onions and cilantros and served it.

To enhance the flavour and taste of the Bhel puri recipe, I have used the spices like Roasted Cumin powder, Chaat Masala and Black Salt.

Normally, a very fine sev, known as Nylon sev, is used for the recipe. I have used the same for the recipe. If it is difficult to get, then normal sev can also be used.

The best part of preparing any chaat recipe is that there is no hard and fast rule to prepare it. It does not has any fixed measurements like the baking recipes. Chaat is the combination of sweet, tangy, salty and heaty taste and you can adjust things according to your choice.
