Sev Puri- a delicious snack

During our stay in Delhi there were two things which we cherished most. One, the city offered amazing array of chaats to invoke new taste buds of your tongue with such excellent new tastes that I didn't think they existed. Another attraction was the variety in shopping options, where every corner of the market had something unique to offer. Once in a month I used to spend almost one whole day on street markets where bargaining is a norm to slick shops selling designer wear and used to end after a long bargaining session !!
Another there is no dearth of street food for New Delhities. But only in Old Delhi is the place where you will find the best chaats in the city. Today presenting you sev puri: puffed savouries, half-filled with two dals, potatoes and mint. Best way to eat this - pop the whole thing in your mouth at one go !!!

Serves: 4, Preparation time: 7-8 minutes

30 Pani puris
1/2 Masoor dal (sprouted)
1/2 cup Green gram dal (sprouted)
1 Lemon juice
2 Boiled Potatoes
2 cups Curd
2 tsp roasted Jeera powder (cumin seed)
1 tsp Red chilli powder
2 tsp Chaat masala powder
1/2  cup Sev
Mint and Coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt to taste

Cut the boiled potatoes into small cubes and mix well with sprouted dal (legumes). Add lemon drops, salt, red chilli powder, chopped mint and coriander leaves. Mix well.
Beat  curd with little salt, roasted jeera powder and red chilli powder. Make it a hole in the center on one side of a puri, so that you can stuff it with the mixture. Put the puri balls in a plate, stuff the above filling and pour curd over it. Season with salt, red chilli powder, jeera powder, chaat masala, sev and garnish with chopped coriander, mint leaves. Serve immediately as the curd in it will make the puris soggy. And enjoy having these puri with a cool drink !!!
