Chaat Mela #5 - Garam Bhel / Garam Pori

Garam pori2

The chaat series cannot be closed down without posting a dish using puffed rice(pori). Its one of the most versatile and simple ingredient to make chaat items too :)

Garam pori or garam bhel is pretty famous in hill stations especially in Tirupathi. I have never missed to have them when I visit Tirupathi every year. It would be a great snack for the chill climate :)

There are various versions of Garam pori and I have put down three variations in this post. Enjoy munching on a guilt free snack :)

And that officially marks the end of my Chaat mela but would definitely post more of such when I make them in the coming days :)

You can add mint chutney and sweet chutney to the bhel as well.
