Here is a continental creation, inspired by our all-time favourite street food, the Sev Puri. The Italian Sev Puri is made by serving cream cheese and croutons on a bed of tomato slices and basil leaves. A dash of spices completes the recipe, giving it a tongue-tickling flavour and strong aroma, which taunts you to take a bite. Make sure you serve the Italian Sev Puri immediately on preparation, or else the croutons will get soft and spoil the experience.
