Want to experience the power of a tornado swirling inside your mouth? Well, no better way than to taste this Geela Bhel.

An awesomely crunchy and spicy snack, the Geela Bhel features puffed rice mixed with an array of spices to get a really chatpata flavour.

Onions, tomatoes, lemon juice, nylon sev and other elements bring in a variety of textures and tastes to this sumptuous snack, which can even double up as a meal.

The phudina chutney used here is quite spicy, with a range of ingredients from ginger, garlic and green chillies to fennel seeds.

It is difficult to make the chutneys and dry masala powder in very small quantities, so you can make a little more as shown here and store the remaining quantities in dry airtight containers in the fridge to use later.

Keep the ingredients ready beforehand, but assemble this quick and easy snack just before serving to enjoy the tempestuous blast of fresh flavours and textures.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. Masala dal is readily available at most provision stores or can be made at home. Soak the chana dal for at least 4 to 5 hours, drain, deep-fry in hot oil and toss in a mixture of salt, chilli powder and black salt. It is added to increase the flavour and add crunch to chaats.

That dry masala powder and teekha phudina chutney is a magical potion. Tried this recipe on an evening and everyone at home loved it. Thanks for the recipe.

I love this Mumbai roadside snack and have it regularly all over the inner streets of Mumbai. From close to Marine Lines station to Chowpathy to Juhu Beach this is a favourite snack.
