Sev Puri

Sev Puri is my another favourite chaat. Every bhelpuriwalla gives his unique taste to Sev puri. In Girgaon, there were 2 bhelpuriwallas who use to make awesome sev-puris, one at Sikka Nagar and the other one was located exactly on the opposite street near Kanyashalla. Taste of both the sev-puris were different, but both were equally tasty.

Many people still get confused between sev puri and dahi batata puri..Sev puri (also known as Sev batata puri) as the name indicates is sev topped on puris along with potatoes and chutneys and important thing is - curd is NOT used in Sev puri.

Ingredients :
20-25 Puris (flat puris)
1 cup bhelpuri sev (nylon sev)
1-2 medium sized potatoes (boiled and mashed)
1 medium sized onion (finely chopped)
1-2 tspoons finely chopped raw mango
¼ cup finely chopped corriander
Green chutney (mint – corriander chutney)
Red chutney (red chilly – garlic chutney)
Sweet chutney (Tamarind, dates & jaggery chutney)
Chaat masala
salt to taste

Preparation :
Arrange the puris in a flat plate.
On each puri set some mashed boiled potatoes and finely chopped onion
Sprinkle some salt over it.
Now pour green chutney, red chutney and sweet chutney.on it.
Now generously sprinkle sev on the puris.
Sprinkle some chaat masala on the sev.
At the end, garnish the puris with chopped coriander and pieces of raw mangoes.

Note : In case of non-availability of raw mangoes, use ½ lemon juice.
