Sev Puri is again one of the favourites at my home. When we were in Mumbai such street food was easily accessible, but not anymore:( So the best option is to make on your own, at home:)
I remember even back home we used to think a hundred times before eating at a roadside 'thela'..You know the hygiene part and all. So I started making 'healthy' street food at home!!
And making Sev puri is not difficult at all.
What I do is, I bring the puris and the sev readymade from the indian grocery store and make the chutneys at home...so you see it becomes quite simple!
For making sev puris you will need-
Onions, finely chopped
Tomatoes, finely chopped
Raw mango, finely chopped
Potatoes, boiled and chopped coarsely
Peanuts and fried chana dal(ready made from the store, again)
Cilantro for garnishing.
Salt and Chaat masala powder.
How to proceed-
To make the sweet chutney I use -
100 gms Dates
1 tbsp Tamarind
1 tbsp jaggery
Red chilly pwdr
First of all if the dates are not seedless then deseed them.Soak the tamarind in water for around 1/2 an hour and then extract the juice or you can also use tamarind pulp that is readily available in the market.
Boil the dates and jaggery in little water for around 5 mins or till they are soft.
Cool them and add the tamarind juice and blend them in a mixie.
Then add salt, red chilly pwdr and jeera pwdr to this.
Add water if it is too thick for the desired consistency.
For making the Green chutney-
I blend together -
Lot of hot green chillies
Now for the assembly-
Place the puris on a plate.
Place the potatoes on them next.
Then comes the chopped onions and tomatoes.
Then drizzle with the sweet and green chutneys.
Top up with generous amounts of sev and cilantro.
And scatter Raw mango, peanuts and chana dal on top.
Finally sprinkle salt and chaat masala pwdr and you can't wait to pop them in your mouth, I bet!
