Bhel puri is a very popular street food in Mumbai. It is tasty chatpata snack made from puffed rice, chopped veggies, and sev and chaat chutneys. The taste of bhel puri lies in the chutney used in it. There are two types of bhel puri one is wet bhel puri which requires thick chaat chutney to make and has a semi-dry texture while the other is sukha bhel which is made without chutney. So if you are unable to make chutney then you can still make dry bhel puri. There are many variations to this popular bhel recipe, but this recipe I share our own mumbai street style version.
