Sev Puri - Mumbai Style Chaat


Just a few days back I had posted all the required chutney’s that our Indian Chaat requires. Doing that how can I miss posting a Chaat, this one is my mamama(grandma-mom’s mom) favorite. Right from the time we were introduced to chaat in Mangalore we got hooked to pani puri and my mamama to sev puri. We always had pani puri first or after having some other chaat at the end but mamama used to stick to her Sev puri and of course taste the rest that we ordered ;). When we had taken her to Mumbai with us she tasted the Sev puri there and told its tastier to Mangalore one. Yes it ofcourse was because the Sev Puri we get in Mangalore (most of the places) and Bangalore was served with Ragda and no laun chutney was added in there. So today’s post is dedicated to my Mamama on her completing her 79th Birthday this year. I wish her long life and good health.



So lets proceed to making of Sev Puri,
Serves: 4
Ingredients:
24 papdis or Puri’s if you don’t have papdi
1/2 cup boiled potatoes , chopped
1/2 cup onions , finely chopped
2 tbsp finely chopped raw mango
2 tsp fresh garlic chutney
8 tbsp khajur imli ki chutney
4 tbsp green chutney
1 tsp chaat masala
½  tbsp lemon juice(optional)
salt to taste

For The Garnish
½  cup sev
2 tbsp finely chopped raw mango

2 tbsp chopped coriander/dhania patta

 Method
  1. Arrange the papdis on a serving plate.
  2. Top each papdi with a little potato, onion and raw mango.
  3. Sprinkle a little salt on top.
  4. Top the papdis with some fresh garlic chutney, khajur imli ki chutney and green chutney.
  5. Sprinkle with chaat masala, lemon juice.
  6. Garnish with the sev and coriander.
  7. Serve immediately.
Note:
Here you can use Puri’s which we use for pani puri if you don’t have Papdi’s. I have served it both the ways with papdi and Puri. It tastes awesome both the ways.
Adding Lemon Juice is optional.
Adding raw mango gives a tangy and a different flavour to the sev puri, its generally done in Mumbai. You can skip it if you don’t have it.
End it all up with a Sukhi Puri.....Yummm 


Happy Cooking,
