Sev Puri Recipe

Sev Puri

Sev Puri is a popular Chaat { Indian Street Food } from Mumbai which will leave you with tons of flavour in a single morsel.

What is Sev Puri ?

Sev Puri also known as “Sev Batata Puri” is an Indian Street food snack where the layers of ingredients are assembled on a flat crisp called Papdi.

As such, its a myth that Chaat is quite difficult and cumbersome task. There is some easy preparation needed in advance and then assembling a chaat just takes a few minutes, just like this Sev Batata Puri.

What are the layers of Ingredients  in Sev Puri?

Papdi’s / Puri’s – These are thin flat disks of crisps made with Whole Wheat flour or a combination of WholeWheat Flour and All Purpose flour { Maida }. Make them at home or buy them from an Asian grocery store.
Potato – Also called as ‘Batata’. The Potatoes are boiled well, peeled and cubed or roughly mashed. I do season them with a bit of salt.
Green Chutney – Also known as Coriander Chutney. This Chutney is absolutely essential in the preparation of any chaat.
Red Chutney – Also known as Tamarind Chutney or Dates Tamarind Chutney. This Chutney is also an essential ingredients for chaat.
Sev – Sev is a gram flour thin noodles that can be bought from an Indian stores.
Onions – Finely Chopped Onions will add a crunch to the Sev Puri Chaat.
Spice Powders – Red Chilli Powder, Roasted Cumin Powder & Chaat Masala.

Chaat Chutneys

The Best part about making chaat is that chutney’s can be made a few days in advance and stored in refrigerator. If I manage to make large portions, I store them in individual small containers and freeze them. In that way, Chutney’s are always ready at home and you can enjoy street food in minutes! I have a post elaborating on the Essential Chutney’s for Chaat , don’t forget to check it!

If you prefer to use the Puri { used for pani puri}, you sure can.. But Sev Puri is best enjoyed with papdi. If you enjoy drizzling yogurt over your sev puri, then you may use the puri {used for pani puri }, add yogurt to the same fillings as sev puri and serve. It is called Dahi Puri.

Some Chaat are authentic and best served as is!!
