Healthy Bhel - popular street food ,but strictly home made

healthy bhel We love chaat and I do make them once in a while on weekends as a evening snack. Bhel is a regular thing at home. I make the bhel quite healthy by adding mungbean sprouts and other raw vegetables. Its generally very filling , quick and easy to make ,healthy and has low calorie content, so good for dieters. So here's how I make.

Puffed rice- 2 cups
Mung bean sprouts- 1cup
Carrots- 1 chopped very fine or grated
Cucumber- 1 chopped very thin
Onion-1 chopped fine.
Tomato- 1chopped fine
potato- 1 boiled and mashed
Coriander chopped fine or garnishing.
Tamarind date chutney-2 tbspn
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder- to your taste
healthy bhelMethod-
For the chutney- I used readypaste this time, but generally I prefer to make it. So heres how I make it- Soak Dates and tamarind in hot water for 30 minutes. Squeeze out the juice. Boil the juice adding jaggery or sugar till it becomes thick. Allow it to cool.
For bhel- Mix all the ingredients together. Serve immediately garnishing with coriander leaves and sev.
