Bhel....

Indian street food, (a.k.a Chaat..)which is a way of life to a majority of us Indians, offers a rich tapestry of myriad flavors that are not only mouth watering but comparatively light on the pocket too..
Indian street food boasts of a number of snack based items or finger foods such as aloo tikki,
mirchi bajji, pakodas, wadas, while some are almost mini meals by themselves, like pav bhaji, dahi bhalla, dahi chaat and papdi chaat. Go to any busy street in a small town or a big city and you’re bound to find rows of street food hawkers cooking the food right before your eyes and selling delectable delicacies that are sure to fire your appetite, leaving you no choice but to want to bite into those hard-to-resist heavenly temptations.
Bhel is a perfect example of such hard-to-resist street food fare (appetizer) and makes a great mouth watering evening snack or salad. It’s a combination of flavors between crispy crushed peanuts, onions, tomatoes, raw mango, fresh coriander leaves, puffed rice and garnished with a tantalizing tamarind chutney and masalas.

What are your favourite Bhel haunts in Bangalore ? I am an old timer and used to frequent Gullu's Chaats in Kumara Park West 15 years ago. I don't think it is still around though. Asha Sweets in Malleswaram is not bad either.
