Sev poori

Sev puri is a popular chaat snack and street food from Mumbai and one of the favorite chaat at my home. We usually have this for lunch. Sev puri is spicy, sweet and tangy to taste with so many different textures and tastes mingling in your mouth. It is easy to assemble Sev puri.  Just that some of the ingredients need to be prepped up before you start assembling them. Sev Puri makes a great party starter. No wonder, everyone will love it this way and ask for seconds and thirds:). This is one of the most delicious snacks which can be enjoyed and loved by all age groups.

I used readymade store bought poori/papdi. You just have to boil potatoes and make fresh chat chutneys or you may use the store bought chutneys too.

Ingredients to make Sev Puri

  • Pooris or papdis – These are crisp flat fried pooris made from whole wheat flour. They can be made at home or bought from stores.
  • Green chutney  – Spicy green chutney made from fresh coriander leaves or both coriander and mint leaves and chillies.
  • Sweet chutney – Made from tamarind, dates, jaggery and spices.
  • Garlic Red chutney – spicy hot chutney made from dry red chilies or red chilli powder and garlic.
  • Sev – Made from crisp fried besan/gram flour . Can be again made at home or bought from stores.
  • Veggies  – Boiled and mash potatoes, chopped onions, cilantro and raw mango.

Its best to make the chutneys a day before and refrigerate them to speed up the process or to cut back on time. Pooris/papdis and sev can be store bought.
