Bhel for Beach

Iam looking for something that can be eat outside and is easy to prepare like chaats. I have a north indian friend who is very good at cooking so i asked her is there anything that i can make and i have plenty of mamra(puffed rice) then she told me to prepare bhel. I prepared and my husband liked it a lot. The next day i prepared again and took to the beach enjoyed it after soaked in sun and water. For good and fresh taste pack the ingredients in seperate ziplock bags and mix everything just before serving, otherwise the mamra will become soggy. It is great for outdoor eating having the aroma and crunchy taste and above it we are hungry :-)

( Mamra(puffed rice),Sev,chopped onions,tomatoes, green chutney,salt,dhaniya powder and lemon)

Ingredients: The quantities depend on how much you are going to prepare and how spicy you want)
Mamra(puffed rice)
Thin Sev
Chopped onions,tomatoes,cucumbers
Dhaniya powder

one lemon

(spicy bhel)

1. Take puffed rice onto a baking pan, sprinkle 2,3 drops of oil and put in the oven for 5 minutes until the puffed rice is crispy (careful it should not get blackened)

For preparing green chutney:
Bunch of corainder leaves
Mint leaves(if you don't have mint leaves add mint powder available in indian stores)

1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
Grind everything and season it. Store in the refirgerator. Stays for 2-3 weeks.
3. Mix mamra,sev,chopped onions,tomatoes,cucumbers. Add green chutney,salt and dhaniya powder. Mix well. serve immediately.
