chana dal bhel puri

the masala chana dal is mixed with finely chopped onions, tomatoes, green chili and coriander for garnishing and topped with sev. as a variation you can also add raw mangoes or crushed papdi or cucumber.

this bhel is served almost all over india with some variation. in mumbai, fresh mangoes or crushed papdi are added to this chaat. whereas in delhi side, i don’t remember anyone using mango in the chaat.

be liberal in sprinkling lemon and chaat masala over it as per your taste buds. you have to eat this chana dal bhel immediately… because if it becomes moist then you won’t get the crisp taste. ideally, it should be crisp and spicy in taste and it goes well as a tea time snack.
