Sev Puri / Sev Poori

India is well known for it's chaat items. The taste of chaat items varies among different states. Sev puri is famous in the streets of Mumbai. My favourite chaat item which can be easily prepared at home and is a very healthy dish. Everybody loves this and can be served as a appetizer, evening snack or as a substitute for meal.

NOTE : 
  • Hot/mint/green chutney and tamarind/sweet chutney is used to add extra flavor. You can skip it if needed.
  • The 2 types of chutney prepared can be stored in an air tight container in a refrigerator and can be used for other purposes also.
  • You can use pani puri's puri,sev puri's puri or even papdi.
  • The garnishing can be adjusted as per the taste.
  • Chaat Masala is used for better taste.
