Homemade Bhel Puri Recipe | How to Make Bhel Puri (Step-by-step Recipe video)

by Rachna

Bhel puri is a delightful street food from India which is popular everywhere. While the general recipe remains the same, it is highly versatile and can be modified as per your taste and liking. Bhel puri recipe is all about balance. It is sour, salty, slightly sweet and spicy. And it is this melee of flavours that gets your tastebuds in a tizzy. It is a perfect anytime snack as it is very healthy. It is also very flavourful. I make it as an evening snack along with chai often.

  • I don’t like sweet chutney so I use only the spicy green chutney in my bhel puri.
  • You can also use grated carrot if you like but I like this combination of veggies.
  • Make sure you serve immediately or your puffed rice will get soggy. You can’t make bhel puri and store it. You have to make it and serve instantly.
  • Adjust spice according to taste.

How to Make Dry Bhel Puri

There is also a dry bhel puri that is often made and eaten. The only difference is that all the above ingredients are used in the dry bhel except wet chutneys. The flavour comes from lime juice and spice mixes. You can add more chopped green chillies or red chilli powder if you want it hotter. This one does not get soggy easily and it is easier to make it quickly. Some people add things like boiled chickpeas to this.

I have to only organise the papadi and the sev and I shall be able to make it. We all LOVE bhel. That’s one of the few things the husband enjoys making but he has some other recipe that uses mustard oil and of course he splatters the kitchen with the Murmura! That’s a devil to clean up.

Rachna -

Get it from your kirana store. It is very easily available. You can use normal sev if you can’t find nylon sev. What your husband makes must be a version of jhal muri, the Bengali way. We love that as well. ?

Soumya -

I love home made chaats and this one seems so easy! It looks so delicious as well.

Rachna -

Super easy and a favourite snack at my place in the evenings. You just need to have the ingredients in place. Many times we don’t have sev or paapri and we just leave it out.

Kaddu -

Bhel puri is anytime food. I simply love it! We usually don’t have imli chutney or hari chutney at home. So we add mustard oil instead. It’s pungent flavour and sharp aroma lends a different kind of twist. Do try it sometime if you haven’t.
