Quick and simple Bhel : 10 minute bhel

I was craving for some thing hot and spicy the moment, I started from home after work and was debating in my mind what will I cook or eat to satisfy this evening hunger. And to my relief , the moment  I reached home I saw this pack of puffed rice sitting on breakfast table . I knew it then and there what I am going to eat and enjoy this lovely Bangalore weather.

I prepared a hot cup of strong  tea to compliment this chat pat bhel to satisfy my hunger.

Here is the quick recipe:-

Serves: 1 person, increase ingredient proportion if you are making it for more people.
