Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging.

For my anniversary, I enjoyed today with my all time favourite Bhel!
Bhel, a famous chaat sold in every street of Mumbai, is no longer restricted to that region – it is famous all over the country. This bhel is a delicious combination of onions, tomatoes, mixture, puffed rice tamarind pulp and dates syrup with some other spices as well. The coriander garnishing adds an amazing flavour to this dish. This is a quick and easy recipe to make and can be enjoyed at any time of the day!

Puffed rice is light and dry, ideal for obese people, as it is very low in calories and gives a feeling of fullness. It is also a good snack for those sensitive to wheat and gluten.

1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp chaat masala
a pinch of turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil
100 grams haldiram’s mixture/corn mixture)

1/4 cup finely chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped coriander leaves
1 tbsp tamarind pulp
1/4 cup dates syrup
1/4 tsp roasted cumin and coriander powder
