How to make sev puri

Chaats are an all time favourite at home.  Kids are happy with it and so am I ! Bhel puri is much preferred but sometimes we do make Sev Puri and Pani puri also.

When it comes to cooking, I need some quick and easy methods. Elaborate and long standing hours are not my cup of tea. I prefer preparing another dish in the mean time. Thus, the puris and sev are outsourced here, all other chutneys and toppings are made at home. Thus, this is an easy reference on How to make Sev Puri

The city’s chaats shop makes two kinds of puris, puffed ones and flattened ones. The flattened ones are called as papdi usually.

Bengali cuisine with Ghugni Chat

Today, a new cuisine makes its advent here as Culinary Hoppers decided to visit West Bengal to enhance their culinary skills. The past few days have been pretty exciting for me.   Bengali cuisine is tasty and elaborate, they  are good chefs who spend a lot of time in planning and cooking ( source : internet). They have a wide range of dishes from sweets to savoury. And my journey begins with Ghugni chat.


Ragda Patties

Ragda Paatis is a very popular chaat . It is a one filling meal. It can be easily prepared if you have the soaked peas. Potato tikkis or patties are prepared and served with a delectable dish of peas, topped  with various chutneys.


Chaats time with Dahi Puri

Chaats are much loved by my kids and when the theme of our bloghop was decided with this one, I had so many in my mind. But soon, it was Dahi Puri and Ragada Pattis I satisfied myself with. Today, one can enjoy all the tasty  chaats from Culinary Hoppers.

These chaats are very popular in North India. From samosas to raj kachori and bhel puri a lot of variety are prepared. Curds is used as an additional topping in some of these recipes. Here is one such kind.

Dahi Puri is quiet similar to Sev Puri, the addition of  spicedyoghurt (Dahi)and the use of puffed puris (golgappa puris)  makes all the difference. One can easily make it if you have the chutneys and a few other ingredients.

Bhelpuri, sevpuri,dahi batata puri, ragda patties, masala puri, dahi papdi and papdi chaat are some of the popular ones.

As I proceed further, today I present to you all the all time favourite “Bhelpuri”

Chaats usually involve the making of three kinds of chutneys. They are the sweet chutney, red chutney and the green chutney.

Sweet Chutney

You need 10 dates deseeded,   a lemon size ball oftamarind , 1/4 tsp cumin seeds,  a small bowl of jaggery, black salt, regular salt

Soak the tamarind in water and extract the pulp. Boil the dates along DSC01581  Bhelpuri favourite chaat DSC01581 300x225

with the pulp,jaggery ,cumin seeds and black salt for ten minutes. Allow to cool. Put in a mixie and make it to a smooth paste.

Green Chutney

You need a bunch of coriander , half a cluster of mint, 10 green chillies, salt

Wash the coriander and mint leaves and let dry. Then grind all the ingredients to together.

Handy hint: Adding water will reduce the shelf life of it. Hence add little water to the required quantity when using it.

Red Chutney

I have heard that some of them soak dry red chillies in water and then grind with cloves of garlic. But I pound red chilli powder with cloves of garlic and salt in the small jar.

This is the conclusion of the first round of preparations.

Ingredients that you need for the making of bhe lpuri are:

  • murmura 
  • 1 bowl of finely chopped onions
  • 1 bowl of finely chopped tomatoes
  • 2 boiled potatoes ,cut into cubes
  • small sev available in market
  • small puris available in market ( I don’t make them)
  • sweet chutney
  • green chutney
  • red chutney
  • a little bit of salt

To proceed:

Take a wide bowl and put murmura into it. Now add the sweet chutney, diluted green chutney, diluted red, sev , onions and mix slowly. Later add potatoes and puris broken into bits.  Lasly add tomatoes,Mix again and serve immediately.DSC01585  Bhelpuri favourite chaat DSC01585 300x225
