Bhel Puri is Bae for most of us. I can vividly recall that when I was introduced to Chaat as a fat kid, I had my large hands on these first. I also developed a very disturbing habit then – everytime Bhel Puri was served, I would first go digging for those Papdi crumbs or chunks. I also remember I would steal a piece or two from the neighbor’s plate (almost always my sister!). *embarrassed look*. But don’t you agree that crunchy Sev and Papdi pieces make all the difference? Anyway… THAT was the level of maniacal addiction to this delicious junk.
Train journeys, school Picnics, family outings, yearly school potlucks, and more commonly my galli shopping visits are flooded with fond memories of aromatic & very Desi Bhel Puri. Although we love to eat outside in the name of craving galli ka khana, it’s equally pleasurable to hold on to a plate full of this crispy and crunchy yummy-ness when watching TV. That said, I’m going to do the honor of spoiling you with some of my tested gyan. 😀
