Sukhi Bhel Chutney

Indian Street Food Series can't be complete without Bhel. I have tried so many versions of Bhel but Sukhi Bhel or dry Bhel is so light and perfect for summer. The most important part of this Bhel is the chutney. If you get the chutney right then everything comes together so well and tastes so delicious. I am sharing my mother in laws recipe that has been tried and tested for over 30 years and we all love how this chutney tastes in dry Bhel. The chutney is completely vegan and jain.
It stores very well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for few months. Check my notes before making it.
