Sukka bhel is a Mumbai street style food and is available in each corner of Mumbai. At each stall you can find a slight variation in ingredients it even taste. This is a simple, yet delicious snack and is a good option for curbing one’s hungerpangs.

Though, I have always observed that inspite of this being a delicious snack if made rightly, not all can manage to achieve it. I myself have tasted it at different places, but have come to like it only at a particular place. In this recipe I have tried and succeded to achieve that taste after a few trials. Though I have used the puffed rice as it is, it can be roasted in a little oil and turmeric powder till crispy and then used for this bhel. This enhances the overall taste of the bhel.

For some more snacks, do take a look at the following recipes too….

  2. Paani Poori
