Bhel Puri is one of the most popular snacks in India.
In Mumbai, we get two types of Bhel Puris – Sukha Bhel (Dry Bhel) and Geela Bhel (Wet Bhel).
Sukha Bhel, as the name suggests, doesn’t require any special Chutneys or other ingredients.
For Geela Bhel, you will need to use Tamarind Chutney, Garlic Chutney, and Coriander Chutney to get those typical Chaat-like flavors and taste.
So, in the following post, I have shared a simple and easy to make Sukha Bhel Puri recipe.
And I’m sure you will love this recipe, as most of the ingredients are generally available in all grocery shops. You don’t have to prepare anything extra in advance for this recipe.

Sukha Bhel Puri recipe can be modified in as many ways as possible.
Here are a couple of must-try variations for you –
In this variation, you can add any of your favorite boiled Sprouts like Moong and Chana.
Just make sure you completely remove the excess water from them.
Otherwise, the Murmuras will soak all the water from Onions, Tomatoes, and Sprouted Beans.
You can also have this Bhel for breakfast, as it gives you a good amount of Carbohydrates and Proteins.
Lemon Bhel is a great variation for Sukha Bhel Puri.
For this recipe, you will need to prepare a Tadka with Turmeric Powder. Once the Tadka is ready, pour it on the Murmuras and mix it well.
Later, you can add the fried Peanuts, Sev, Masala Chana Dal (Optional), Lemon Juice, and Salt as per your taste.
Simple, isn’t it?
So, do try this healthy version of Sukha Bhel and let me know how it turns out.
This Bhel is also known as Surti Bhel in Gujarati community of India.
