  • 2 cups Puffed rice
  • 2 tablespoons peanuts roasted or fried
  • 1 tablespoon bhujia
  • ¼ cup onions chopped
  • ¼ cup tomatoes chopped
  • ¼ cup cucumber chopped
  • ½ potato boiled, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ¼ teaspoon chaat masala
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin powder roasted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon mustard oil



  • Firstly finely chop the veggies like onion, tomato, cucumber, boiled potato and green chillies. Keep these aside.
  • In a pan, heat one teaspoon of oil, add turmeric and puffed rice. Roast puffed rice on low for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool down.

Making Bhelpuri

  • In a bowl add puffed rice, chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, boiled potatoes and onions (I skipped).
  • Add peanuts and bhujia. Break the thick potato chips into smaller pieces.
  • Add cumin powder, chaat masala powder, red chilli powder, black salt and salt as per taste.
  • Now add chopped green chillies, green chutney and tamarind sauce.
  • Mix well and serve immediately.



  • First and foremost! Never serve a soggy bhel. Serve it immediately after mixing. A Delay of even a few minutes is enough to make it soggy. That is the reason that Street side Bhelpuri vendors make it fresh when you order it. Bhel should be crunchy. 
  • For this you can assemble all the ingredients beforehand and when you are ready mix it and enjoy. 
  • Roasting Puffed rice is desirable for this recipe. You can use them without wasting them if they are crunchy enough.
  • Always use red slightly brownish puffed rice that has more flavour compared to white pillowy puffed rice.
  • If you can’t find red puffed rice and use white puffed rice make sure to roast them before using them for the perfect texture.
  • You can adjust the number of spice powders or both chutneys as per your personal preference. 
  • You can use store-bought tamarind and green chutney. But the flavour comes from chutney so I suggest if you have time make fresh chutneys.
