Prawn & Sausage Bhel


          Bhel Puri is a very popular Mumbai style street food / chaat liked by young and old alike. This is my favourite too. The main ingredient is puffed rice, which is served along with chopped onion, boiled potatoes, tomatoes, chilies, sev, papdi, farsan and various types of spicy and tangy chutneys. 

          However, I gave a slight twist by adding some sautéed prawns and chicken sausages. I skipped the chutneys though and kept it dry. It turned out super yummy and appetizing. This fusion non-veg. bhel is a must try recipe. Instead of the mandatory chutneys, I relished with some chili mayo and it turned out to be a mind blowing combo. So do give it a try and I'm sure you'll enjoy this delectable chaat.

          You can enjoy this bhel as a snack or anytime of the day. In fact, I sometimes like to have it as a light dinner. 

          It is an absolutely easy recipe and best enjoyed immediately before it turns soggy. Apart from the ingredients I used, you can also add sprouts, chopped bell pepper, capsicum or dry fruits.

  • 10-12 prawns, deveined & cleaned 
  • 2-3 chicken sausages, sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp. oil
  • pinch of salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder
  • 2-3 cups puffed rice 
  • 2 tbsp.  fine sev (savoury noodles)
  • 8-10 small papdis, crushed
  • 2 tbsp. mixture (farsan)
  • 2 tbsp. plain boondi
  • 2 tbsp. roasted peanuts
  • 1-2 tbsp. roasted chana dal
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped
  • 1 small potato, boiled & chopped
  • 1/4 cup kabuli chana, boiled
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh grated coconut 
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili flakes
  • pinch of salt 
  • 1/2 tsp. roasted cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp. chaat masala 
  • 1 tsp. lime juice

          Marinate the prawns with a pinch of salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder for 5-10 minutes. 

          Meanwhile, heat oil in a pan and sauté the sliced sausages till light brown. Keep aside. In the same oil stir fry the prawns for 2-3 minutes. Drain and keep aside to cool down. 

          In a large bowl, mix together all the mentioned ingredients. Transfer to a serving bowl or individual bowls and serve immediately for a yummy evening snack.
