  10. If making for later use, keep the puffed rice and nylon sev aside while preparing the rest of the mixture. While serving, mix them all together and toss.

Tips

Fried puri is an essential item as it adds the crunch bites in the bhel puri. My kids always eat the puris from the bhel puri first. 🙂

Soaked boondi adds a balance of crunch to the bhel puri. Though if you are adding saunth and chutney then you can add dry boondi as well.

Adding potatoes is optional though it helps in adding a some weight to the recipe. Else bhel puri is so light that you won’t even feel any thing in your stomach.
