Moong Bhel

Bhel is the most commonly sold chaat in the streets of Mumbai. Almost every street has its own friendly bhelwala with his inimitable blends of chutneys and masalas. Bhel is a delectable combination of papadis, farsan,puffed rice, sev, onions, potatoes, raw mango and chutneys.

Here the twist is that instead we have replaced puffed Rice with Sprouts,making it rich in protein and fibre.


2 cups Moong Sprouts(steamed with salt and turmeric)

1/2 cup Nylon Sev

1/2 cup mixed Farsan.

10  Papadi

1/2 cup chopped Onions

1/2 cup boiled & chopped Potatoes.

1 tbsp finely chopped raw Mango (optional)

2 tsp fresh Mint chutney

4 tbsp Khajur Imli ki chutney

1 tsp Black Salt

1/2 tbsp Lemon juice.

chopped Corriander leaves.


Wash and soak moong for 6 hours,drain water cover and keep it overnight for sprouting,once sprouted, add little water,salt and turmeric and steam them covered for 2 minutes on medium flame.

Drain water and keep Prepared Sprouts aside to cool.

Once the sprouts have cooled down to room temperature,take a big bowl and combine all the ingredients in it,toss gently till all the ingredients are mixed well.

Divide into 4 equal portions and garnish each portion with the Sev,chopped corriander leaves and papdi.

Serve immediately.

Tips-Nylon sev is a very thin variety of deep fried besan sev used as a topping for chaats. It is readily available at most provision stores.
