Sev Puri

Another one of the quickies, which gets ready in a jiffy, and can be served to any of your surprise guests :P
I was born in Kerala and bought up in Mumbai, thus Chaats are very much a part of my staple diet...i love gobbling on the pani puri's by the roadside or the sweet chatni wala bhel..

here goes my version of sev puri

Puri---available from the local stores
Khajoor imli ki chutney(boil seedless date, add tamarind pulp, salt, sugar/jaggery, amchoor powder, blend it)
Coriander mint chutney(bunch of coriander + half quantity of mint+ green chilly+ salt+ ginger piece)
Boiled Potatoes
Sev, boondi
Onion, tomato, coriander leaves finely chopped
Chana dal

1) Take the puri, put in the mashed potato, put coriander chutney, khajoor chutney
2) Garnish it with sev, boondi, onion, and tomato...

During summer season, when i can get hold of raw mango, i do add finely chopped pieces of it, along with onion and tomato, the tangy flavor rocks
For a healthy version you can also put in sprouts...when i am bored with sev puri, i more or less follow the same recipe with Pani puri wala round puri, and call it as masala puri...
Masala puri is equally famous as a chaat in Mumbai
