Bhelpuri with Chick-Peas

Bhelpuri with Chick-Peas
Ding dong and my clock showed 4pm and immediately my tummy wants to have some snack which happens almost everyday.I really want to have some comfort food available in the street in most part of India which has became very popular. Chaats!!!!I love bhel puri and never get enough of it. It is so fulfilling, yet not fattening at all. I just love the combination of fresh vegs with the sev and rice puffs. And the chutneys are so yummy. I also make the 'dates' chutney along with tamarind chutney."A plate of savoury snacks, typically served at road-side tracks from stalls or carts in India. With its origins in the northwestern state of Gujarat, chaat has become immensely popular in the rest of north India and the rest of South Asia which This is a masala, or spice mix, typically consisting of amchoor (dried mango powder), cumin, Kala Namak, coriander, dried ginger, salt, black pepper, and red pepper. Always assemble bhelpuri just before you're going to eat it to prevent the puffed rice from getting soggy.

1 cup puffed rice (available at Indian stores)
1 cup boiled chick-peas
a handful of roasted and salted peanuts
2 potatoes boiled, peeled and chopped into tiny cubes
