Jhal Muri is very similar to Bhel Puri. It is also made from crispy puffed rice; however it much spicier than Bhel Puri. Here the crispy puffed rice is mixed with chopped tomatoes, mashed potatoes, green chillies, masala chana dal, salted peanuts, and chopped cucumber. The mixture is tossed in sweet tamarind chutney and a fiery green chutney, but it is the addition of sarson ka tel (mustard oil) that gives Jhal Muri its unique flavour.

The fusion of sweet, sour, and spicy tastes in Jhal Muri makes it a mouthwatering snack.

 Bhel Puri is spicy and tasty street food. If you crave for some ‘chaat’, then Bhel Puri is the easiest dish to make. 

It is made from crispy puffed rice that is mixed with chopped tomatoes, green chillies, mashed potatoes, masala peanuts, spices, papdi and nylon sev. This mixture is then tossed with sweet tamarind chutney and lightly spicy green chutney and garnished with chopped coriander.

The tangy and lip-smacking bhel with crushed papdi and crunchy peanuts and sev makes for a perfect evening snack.
