What is the difference between the dry bhel puri and wet bhel puri recipe

There are two popular recipes of bhel puri available in India: dry bhel puri or “sukha bhel” and another one is wet bhel puri or “geela bhel“.

Though both of these recipes are made of the same ingredients, the main difference is the use of chutneys.

If you want to make “dry bhel puri” just follow all of the above recipes except the “chutneys” part, which doesn’t require “wet bhel puri“.


Tips to make street style bhel puri chaat


  • Crispy Murmura : To get the best result from the bhel puri make sure you use fresh puffed rice that is crisp enough, if not you can dry roast in low flame for 3 to 4 min to make them crispy.


  • Use Of Chutney : You can make all the bhel puri chutney earlier and store them in an airtight container, While using chutney make sure you first use a little amount and then the rest of the amount if required because lots of chutney makes your bhel puri soggy.


  • Additional Ingredients : If you like you can mix fried peanut, crushed papri,sev, boiled chickpeas while assembling bhel puri chaat.


  • Secret Flavor : To get the flavour just like street style bhel puri, you have to use chaat masala powder and roasted cumin powder it.
