Sev Puri Recipe | How to make Sev puri | Mumbai Sev Puri Recipe

Print Friendly and PDF

Sev Puri is one of the popular chaats which evolved from the streets of Mumbai.You will find the bhel waala in every corner of the streets here in Mumbai, though I usually don't venture out eating at the road side stalls unless it is a popular stall.Though we get Sev puri everywhere in India,Mumbai style sev puri is bit different when compared to the other versions.What makes Mumbai style Sev Puri different is the addition of Garlic chutney and lemon juice which is quite unique to Mumbai style Sev Puri.

While I love all kind of chaat varieties, my all time favorite is Golgappa/Pani puri and Bangarpet Pani Puri.Apart from those pani puri varieties, I love masala puri, sev puri, papdi chat and dahi puri. Back home apart from my dad, we are all chaat lovers .While we eat chaats as a meal but my dad always prefers to eat it as a evening snack and so is the case with my husband now.

If you love chaats, check out few other chaat recipes here in my blog:
