Quick Bhel Puri Recipe using Tomato Ketchup

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Bhel Puri is a very popular Indian Street Food and is one of my favorite snacks. Its quick & easy to make and a delight to eat.

Traditionally Bhel Puri is made from puffed rice, onions, tomatoes and spiced with Coriander Chutney and Tamarind Chutney.

However, I often run out of the green and tamarind chutneys at home. On such occasions, I make Bhel Puri using Tomato Ketchup instead, which creates the perfect balance of sweet, spicy & tangy flavors.

I also add a spicy namkeen mixture to the bhel to give it more flavor as well as crunchiness.

This quick bhel puri recipe is perfect when you are out of chutneys but craving a spicy & delicious bhel. It’s a great option to make when you are short on time or feeling lazy.

To make Bhel Puri at home follow the detailed step by step recipe with photos posted below.

  • Add any Spicy Namkeen mixture. I use Mastana Mix from Mirch Masala here. I have also had great results with Malwa Mix from Mirch Masala, Haldiram's Navratan Mix and even Bhujiya Sev. You can use any spicy mixture that is available to you or simply add sev.
