Crisp, crunchy, spicy, tart, sweet .. Sev Puris can be served as an anytime snack ... I love to prepare Chaat recipes especially in Summer, its the perfect time when there is craving to eat something really spicy and chatpata ... if you don't want the heat to bother you, Dahi Sev Puri is the right pick ...
RECIPES MAKES 12-15 SEV PURIS
Boil 1 big potato to 4 whistles, cool completely, mash - To the mashed potato add the following
1 fresh tomato finely chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup fresh green mango finely chopped
1 or 2 green chillies finely chopped (depending on how spicy you want)
1/4 cup Nadiyaadi Bhusu/Mix Farsan (any Farsan that has fine sev & dals mix)
1 teaspoon salt
1.5 teaspoons Red Chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon Everest Chaat Masala
1/4 cup fresh cut cilantro/dhania
Lightly mix all the above ingredients with your fingers & blend all the spices well. Check the taste of salt & adjust spices.
Arrange 12-15 Sev Puris or Doritos / Tostitos Chips in a big plate or tray (sometimes outside India, fresh puris for sev puri are not available, you can substitute Corn Doritos/Tostitos chips)
Place a spoonful of the sev puri mixture that is prepared above.
Pour generous amount of Tamarind Date chutney over this.
Add green cilantro chutney (cilantro + garlic + green chillies + salt + little water - detailed recipe in Mumbai Sandwich recipe)
For Dahi Sev Puri - add a small spoonful of yogurt on this.
Sprinkle Bhel Sev/Nylon Sev/any other sev on this. Serve immediately.
Garnish with gresh cut cilantro & pomegranate seeds (if in season)
Prepare & enjoy !!!
