Healthy Bhel – popular street food ,but strictly home made

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.
