Sukha Bhel

Bhel Puri is one of the most popular Indian street food. This snack is served at beach side, bus stops and train stations in India. We have grown up eating different versions of Bhel in Mumbai especially on Chowpatty and Juhu Beach. Although we love all of them, Sukha Bhel holds a special place for some people like my husband who demands to eat it twice a week.
The Sukha Bhel chutney makes a huge difference when you are making this version of Bhel. Since there is no wet chutneys in this bhel, it stays super crunchy and gives bursts of textures and flavors. You can modify this bhel based on your taste. We love it spicy and tangy so we add lots of green chilies and lime juice. I promise this Bhel will remind you of India.
Bhel is completely vegan and can be modified for jain foodies by subtracting the onions and potatoes. Some people like to add chopped cucumber and peanuts to the bhel. You have lot of room to play around with the textures.
I love to see you make my recipes so don't forget to send me message when you do make them.
