Bhel puri (or bhel poori, bhelpuri) is no doubt the most common chaat on the streets of Mumbai alongside the popular pav bhaji. In fact, I first had my taste of Bhel Puri in Chennai Marina Beach where a vendor mixed it up and put them in newspaper cones for curious 8-year-old me. While it was probably not as authentic as the Bhel Puri you find in Mumbai, I was hooked! How can a simple fistful of ingredients and sauces create something so delicious, I wondered. Well, I guess I now know that there’s nothing very simple about the flavours incorporated into the chaat chutneys and the quick mix of ingredients that make up this delicious snack – Bhel Poori.
