Quick Bhel - instant tea time snack

Its summer already and is it just me(blame it on the heat) I'm so hungry always :) I decided to have this easy to make bhel which is so cooling and refreshing and filling all the same time!

Bhel is a very popular street food/train food in Mumbai.When I was in college me and my friends used to munch on this bhel while getting back home.Such a tangy crispy snack that can be enjoyed my old and young all alike.  

Usually bhel is served with some crispy puris, sev puffed rice, onions and drizzled with sweet and sour chutneys. Since i'm making it as a regular snack now i just add vegetables available and puffed rice.

There is no recipe as such but to make this you need:

Puffed rice 1 cup
Finely chopped vegetables - onions,tomatoes,cucumbers
Lime juice as needed
Chilli powder as needed
Chopped coriander leaves/cilantro as needed
Salt (optional)
Chaat masala optional

Take a mixing bowl add the vegetables, cilantro along with the puffed rice,Chaat masala, chilli powder and salt to taste.Sprinkle the lime juice and mix well, serve immediately else the puffed rice will go soggy.

Enjoy a cool refreshing snack for tea!
