Indian Bhel is one of the popular Indian chaats loved my almost everyone. Have this spicy, tangy, masaledar puffed rice with hot tea at evenings especially during rainy season. Wow! Perfect snack with family during the lazy rainy weekends. Its been ages when I actually used to enjoy this at street corners in the evenings. Wow! what an experience.
Puffed Rice is also called Chirmuri or Mandakki in Kannada.
Here's the recipe of Masala Chirmuri/ Bhel Puri
Bhel/ Puffed Rice - 3-4 cups
Onion - chopped - 2-3
Grated Carrot - 2
Tomato Chopped - 3
Coriander leaves- few
Red Chilli powder - 2tsp
Amchur powder - 1 tsp ( else add Raw tangy mango pieces instead of this)
Chivda/ Mixture - 1/2 cup
Roasted groundnuts - 1/4 cup
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Fresh lemon juice 1-2 tsp (Optional)
Salt to taste
1. Mix all the ingredients in a wide bowl except Puffed rice.
2. Add puffed rice to the above mixture and mix well till the puffed rice is nicely coated with the masala's.
