Bhelpuri - The Tongue Tickler

Bhelpuri - The Tongue Tickler

Who Dosent Love Street Foods?? 

Bhelpuri is one among very famous street food which nobody can say no to!!
Its, yummy and chatpata and biggest advantage is healthy and low calorie snack. Nutritious Filling and delicious what more one needs to get convinced to make this yummy street food at home???

I Really wanted to make this from long time and finally the day came when mom brought packets of puffed rice one of the main ingredients. Once this was in my hand I slowly started preparation towards tamarind chutney , green chutney and veggies, every ingredient is very important. Though it takes time for preparation of ingredients, but once you got all, then making and serving it can be done in jiffy.

I should tell you!! You can organize a party and serve this to almost 20-30 people with no trauma I shall tell u how in later part.

Lets get started!!
Serves-  10-12 people generously

Puffed Rice – 2 Packets
Potato – 2 -3 boiled and diced
Onion – 2 large (chopped Wash it 2-3 times nicely)
Cucumber – 2 (peeled, deseeded and chopped)
Tomatoes – 3-4 (deseeded and chopped)
Grapes – cut into 2
Roasted Peanuts: ½ cup or more (de-skinned)
Tamarind Chutney – As needed
Green Chutney – As needed
Sev- Nylon sev or normal thick sev For Garnishing as needed

Method To Prepare One Plate Of Bhelpuri
-    In a large bowl take 2 tablespoon of all the ingredients each except Puffed Rice and mix it well.

-    Just Before Serving Add 2 cups of puffed rice and mix thoroughly.
-    Garnish it with some more grapes and Sev
-    Serve immediately.

-    2 cups puffed rice may feel more but when puffed rice comes in touch with all the moisture content in the veggie mixture it starts to shrink this is another reason to add puffed rice just before serving.
-    You may add coriander leaves and carrot chopped too
-    Washing Onion is optional but I do it to reduce the strong taste which some onions carry.
-    Deseeded and chopped cucumber gives gud crunchiness while eating.
-    Don’t use sour tomatoes. Use the ones used for sandwiches.
-    You may add pineapple/ pomegranate too instead of grapes.
-    Adding Fruits are optional but enhances the taste of bhelpuri when you get some sweet to chew in between.

- You may also add crushed puris to this totally optional

The amount of ingredients I prepared was just for 4-5 people. But We had Some guest the very day and you have to believe me that this much amount of ingredients was enough for almost 10 people and also guests helped themselves with 2nd and 3rd helpings too.

You can serve these for parties easily as you can have the veggies mixed with chutney ready ahead and just add in the puffed rice and serve with garnishings, its a total mess free deal to make everyone happy :)

You may also add more chutney from top if you like depending upon your taste.

It was Sweet, Spicy, Crunchy and Chewy all in one. Adding of grapes helped to balance the spiciness bhelpuri carried.
With no single doubt everyone liked it very much including guest.
Mom said she liked it a lot as she said she was able to feel all the flavors which made the dish outstanding!!

    The True Spicy Story of Salem Massachusetts :
    old galeon and old harbor in Salem massachussets Usa
    When most people hear the words Salem, Massachusetts, they immediately think of the Salem Witch Trials. It’s true that the infamous witch trials did take place in 1692 and 1693 in what was then Salem Village. However, Salem has a much bigger legacy than the relatively short blip in history that represents the witch trials.
    Following the Revolutionary War, the young men of Salem were eager to try their hands at international trade. No longer were they reliant on the taxed imports of England. They were free to seek spices and teas from anywhere in the world. They just had to be brave enough to venture the high seas to procure them.
    One such man, Captain Jonathan Carnes, set sail from Salem with his crew to the far off land of Sumatra. They returned eighteen months later with the first imported spice, a cargo hold full of pepper. Captain Carnes was able to sell his pepper at a 700 percent markup, cementing his place as a master of commerce. Other ship owners followed suit, and in the last decade of the 1700s, Salem had become a famous seaport, valued for its access to spices the world over. Ships departing from Salem brought back spices from China, Sumatra, Japan and Russia.
    You can easily close your eyes and imagine the rich aromas that must have wafted from the bowels of the ships as they cruised into Salem. Wooden crates must have been filled to overflowing with turmeric, saffron, sugar cane, pepper and salt. The hulls must have groaned with the weight of those crates, stacked crooked and high by men whose hands were rough as sandpaper but whose hearts were light with thoughts of the money they would make if they could only reach home safely.
    Today, the streets of Salem are lined with the mansions of those ship captains who found the courage to combat the high seas in a time when they were swarming with pirates. There was no coast guard to come to their aid; no helicopter to pluck them from the frigid ocean. Those ship captains and their crew made their fortunes on the water and they earned every penny.
    If you visit Salem, you can visit some of the mansions that were home to the ship captains. Many have been turned into museums and either have original furnishings or replicas. You can see how the captains lived, see the floorboards where their patient wives must have paced, anxiously awaiting the return of their husbands.
    In Salem, you will also find some of the most unique spice shops in all of New England, a tribute to the spice industry that made Salem come alive after the ravages of the Revolutionary War nearly stopped our country before it began.
