24 Aug Sev Puri
This dish is easy, delicious and packs in a good dose of fibre! This is a simple Indian vegetarian appetizer which compliments any meal. We recently had this on Eid and it was a great starter before our biryani dinner.
Sev puri is an Indian snack and a type of chaat and street food that originates from Mumbai. The small puris are easily found in South Asian supermarkets or in the international aisle at your local grocery store.
You could use potatoes, chickpeas or mung beans for the filling. I prefer using mung beans since they contain fibre, protein, and prebiotic benefits.
All you need to do is mix the cooked seasoned mung beans with cilantro, tomato, onion and fresh lemon juice. Sprinkle with sev, which are small pieces of crunchy noodles made from chickpea flour. Lastly, just top with tamarind sauce and mint chutney. Yum!
The puris do take a bit of time to assemble since you have to break the center of the puri to create space to fill them. This task is great to get the kids involved!
