Bhel puri is one of the easiest , tasty and guilt free snack .. I used to make this very often in my home .. Whenever i have chaat chutneys in my hand , bhel puri is the first snack recipe that hits my mind..I  make it very simple by just adding the raw veggies ,sweet & sour chutneys and sev.. I usually don’t add papdi..Of course adding crushed papdi makes this snack more crunchy.. So i add more sev , roasted peanuts , cashews etc to replace papdi Winking smile.. As u all know , this snack should be served immediately after u mix.. By the time i finished clicking , it became soggy & i ate a soggy bhel Sad smile….
