Instructions
 

  • First, roast the cornflakes in a kadai or saucepan for a few minutes to make them more crisp (optional). Allow to cool. Blend all the chutney ingredients in a blender with a little water to a fine paste. Taste and adjust the salt.
  • In a bowl, mix the onions, tomatoes, carrots and boiled potatoes with the chutney (use as much as needed). At this point, you can sprinkle chaat masala powder and black salt as needed for an extra flavor!!
  • Just before serving, gently stir in the cornflakes, boondis and crumbled papdi. Sprinkle with fine sev and coriander leaves and serve immediately!!

Notes

  • Addition of papdi and boondis is optional.  For a healthier option, you can avoid them. You can even substitute Ritz crackers or Monaco biscuits for the papdi.
  • Amount of chutney added is according to your taste.  Chaat masala powder and black salt can be added for additional flavor.
  • Cornflakes bhel must be eaten immediately as keeping them even for a few minutes will make them soggy!!
