How to Make Mumbai Shev Puri
Shev Puri recipe with step by step photos – a street food snack from mumbai and one of my favorite chaat recipe. in fact, coming to think of it, all the chaat recipes are my all time favorites
shev puri is a spicy, sweet, tangy chaat with so many different textures and tastes mingling in your mouth. its easy to assemble shev puris. just that some of the ingredients need to be prepped up before you start assembling them.
The ingredients and tid bits you will need to make shev pooris are:
Pooris or Papdis : These are crisp flat fried discs made from whole wheat flour. they can be made at home or brought from stores.
Green Chutney – Spicy Chutney made from fresh coriander leaves or both coriander and mint leaves
Sweet Chutney – made from tamarind, dates and jaggery.
Red Chutney – spicy hot chutney made from dry red chilies and garlic
Shev – crisp fried gram flour vermecilli. can be again made at home or bought from outside.
Veggies – chopped boiled potatoes, chopped onions and tomatoes.
its best to make the chutneys one day before and refrigerate them. as i mentioned above, the papdis and shev can be store brought.
In sev puri, curd/yogurt is not added, unless one wants it. in papdi chaat along with curd, boiled white chickpeas and sometimes urad dal/black gram pakoris/fritters are added. shev, onion and tomatoes are also not added to the papdi chaat. the rest of the ingredients are same. as soon as shev puris are assembled, they have to served immediately or else the pooris turn soggy. here i have just shared the assembling part in the step by step pics. for the chutney recipes, please read the links mentioned above. or you can read their recipes in the recipe details below.
