Indian snacks are appreciated by one and all. From pani puri to pav bhaji, there are a variety of options available for the food enthusiasts. Among the range of street food options, Bhel puri is a beloved Indian street food cherished across India. Its preparation involves a delightful assortment of puffed rice, with some chopped vegetables, all combined with various types of dips and spices. This street-side delicacy presents a symphony of flavours – sweet, sour, tangy, and spicy. This street food has not just impressed the Indians but has left an impact on foreigners too. Recently, an American chef prepared this Indian snack. Eitan Bernath is known for sharing Indian recipes on his Instagram handle. He recently posted a video recipe of bhel puri preparation.

The video begins with the chef adding puffed rice, sev, and boondi to a large bowl. He then proceeds to crush some puris and adds them to the mix. Next, he adds chopped onions, tomatoes, boiled potatoes, cilantro, and green chilies. The chef then heats a pan, roasts some peanuts, and incorporates them into the bhel puri mix. Following that, he sprinkles chaat masala and Kashmiri chilli, giving it all a thorough dry mix.

Later, Eitan adds mint and tamarind chutneys, mixing it all again. He also suggests that the mixture should be “wet but not soggy.” After preparing the dish, he puts it on a plate and indulges in the flavourful creation. The text attached to the video reads, “I’ve been dreaming of the bhel puri I ate in Mumbai on my last trip, so I had to give it a try myself.”
