Imagine you are at a beach in Mumbai eating Bhelpuri listening to the sound of the waves as the sun begins to set. Looks like the perfect way to spend an evening, doesn’t it? This snack is actually associated with the beaches of Mumbai as you would find at least a single Bhelpuri vendor there if not a dozen. But now you can easily make this Chat dish at your home by watching this how to make healt ... hy Bhelpuri video tutorial. In this recipe, we will be making the puris or papdis from scratch using atta and only 3 teaspoons of refined oil to make sure that this Healthy Bhelpuri recipe is as healthy as it can be. You can think of this recipe as your traditional Bhelpuri with a twist as we are using a few ingredients that you wouldn’t normally see in Bhelpuri but rest assured that they not only enhance the flavour of this chat dish but also make it more nutritious. In addition to boiled potatoes and tomatoes, we will also be adding a raw mango and some Pomegranate to this dish to give it a hint of tanginess and a touch of sweetness. The lightly toasted fresh coconut shavings further add to the allure of this savoury snack and to season it, we use some Chat masala, Red Chilli powder, Black salt and Turmeric powder. You can add some salt to it but only if it’s needed. We recommend you do a taste check before you add some.
