Churmuri/Bhel/Puffed Rice Snack

                                       Bhel puri

This is my yet another favorite snack. It is hot, sour, and crunchy. The main ingredients are roasted peanuts, onion, tomato, and sev. Sev is a popular Indian snack. It is small pieces of crunchy noodles made from chickpea flour paste. For more information kindly refer our friend, Wikipedia. This is more of street food in our country loved by all age group. Nothing more to say about this snack taste them all by yourself and you will know what it is all about. How about some hot pakoras to go with it kindly refer this link for aloo pakora



  • 100 gm. puffed rice
  • 50 gm. sev
  • 1 large onion finely chopped
  • 1 medium size tomato finely chopped
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp green chili paste
  • ½ cup grated carrot
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Coriander to garnish
  • Salt to taste


Step 1: Heat oil a large pan and fry peanuts for a minute and allow it to cool.

Step 2: After it’s completely cooled add all ingredients except puffed rice and sev to the pan. Mix all the ingredients well. Now add puffed rice, sev and give a quick stir. Serve immediately.


  • As I always say spice can be adjusted based on your spice level.
  • Serve immediately as it tends to become chewy later.
  • Let the pan cool down completely otherwise it becomes soft and chewy.
  • Tomato is optional.
