Bhel, the ever-popular Mumbai roadside snack is so popular all over the world that it has managed to fire people's imagination and spin out innumerable variants.
This Mexican Bhel is our latest addition to the repertoire. It's quite easy to make and can be made from scratch at home. The idea is to bring together classic Mexican components like chunky salsa, crisp tortilla chips, sweet corn, capsicum and boiled rajma along with a handful of sev, to make a crunchy, tangy, pulpy Bhel.
You can adjust the spice levels according to your taste. The Mexican Bhel is an innovative snack that you can serve at parties to boggle your guests' imagination!
Just make sure that the tortilla chips are added just before serving or they will get soggy. While on a Mexican spree, try other recipes like Mexican Rice or Mexican Rajma, Bean Sprouts and Lettuce Tossed in Guacamole Dressing.
