Bhelpuri

Now that I'm back from a short vacation, just started to go through the blog left unattended for few days. Still I must say, no great cooking happening here, so off to my drafts and here comes a lovely chat. Simple and loved chat is Bhelpuri. This post was pending from long and got a chance today to share it. These holidays made me lazy I believe, the weather and climate too to be blamed for. Nowadays I don't feel like preparing anything good to be posted, just because the weather gets so dull and I get only a small duration when we get good daylight sun to photograph. This is a recipe that I prepared long back in Summer and here I share it during peak winter time, the pics are now tempting me to prepare Bhelpuri all over again.

Notes:
  1. If green chutney is available, do add that as per your taste.
  2. This bhelpuri has no hard and fast rule, adjust ingredients as per availability and according to your taste.
  3. Puffed rice could be roasted well on a low to medium flame if desired, but I didn't.
