Bhel Puri - Day 1 of blogging marathon

Happy to be a part of yet another blogging marathon hosted by Srivalli.Last time ,it was fun preparing dishes,picturing and updating it.Its literaly a challenge ,as we had 20 plus bloggers .But this time ,it has been divided into 2 groups.Thanks valli for ur effort.I am going to present u the dishes in the category. "kids friendly",for the next 7 days.Today, I am going to present u my favourite ,from childhood - Bhel puri Chaat.
Bhel puri is a famous chaat item .It is a spicy mixture garnished with green chutney and tamarind chutney.When I am writing this, my childhood memories come flashing all the way.I just go back few years and remember the day,when I was introduced to this chaat accidently.Accidentaly ? yes ,u r reading it right.
   One day when I was studying 8 th or 9 th,we went to a restaurant and about to order some dishes.This bhel puri name fascinated me very much,thinking that ,it is a kind of puri like chole puri.But when the dish arrived ,I started searching for  the puri.Very big dissappoinment.Everyone bursted in laughter and I was literally a fool that day.From that day, it became my favourite dish.Hmm...Yet to introduce to my son.But he loves the sev and other things ,not chutneys.This is again an easy dish,if we have the chutneys handy.
