Bhelpuri

    Bhelpuri is a very popular dish amongst both young and old. It is mainly sold at roadside cafes/stalls, on the train, on the
    bus and at fairs. Though not served as a commercial dish at restaurants, it is a very tasty dish and eaten on a regular
    basis by most Indians.

    Tips:
    Puffed rice and rice crisps turn soggy very quickly when left out in the air. Serve straightaway while it is still crispy and
    fresh! Haldiram Bombay Mix can be very hot, medium or mild in hotness. Choose one that suits your taste buds!
