What to do when your cookie jar is filled with all tidbits of broken biscuits. What do you do generally, throw them, right? Not anymore!! Make this delicious snack of Biscuits Bhelpuri with them.
Bhelpuri, a savoury snack or chaat is a very famous street food originating from the Indian subcontinent.
It is made from puffed rice,sev, chutneys and a mixture of other fried snacks. Bhelpuri has a balance of sweet, salty, tart and spicy flavors, with different textures of crispiness and crunchiness coming from different savory snacks together as one Bhelpuri.
When you add in biscuits to the already scrumptious and delicious Bhelpuri it becomes all the more filling and yummy. And not to forget all those biscuit pieces which were about to make their way to the garbage were used in the best way possible.
I always keep a ready mix Bhelpuri packet in my pantry to make for those quick hunger pangs or unexpected guests.
Adding biscuits to the bhel brings in a new twist and your guests and family will be surprised to see this new element.
Biscuit Bhel can be quickly prepared within minutes and served as a tasty snack. It goes well with most people and kids enjoy it too.
I have prepared this Bhelpuri with a ready mix Bhelpuri packet. I find it very easy to make. Just cut open the packet, mix the masala pouch given with it with some water, add in the dry ingredients and other things like, onions, tomatoes, chilies, chutneys etc. according to your taste, and voila! Within 5-7 minutes you have a delicious treat in your hand!
I have used few Monaco and few Tuc biscuits. You can use any savory biscuits.
Serve it with some nice hot tea or coffee and appreciation is bound to follow.
Ready Bhelpuri Packet- 1
( I have used Haldiram’s Ready Mix Bhelpuri Packet which is of 200 grams)
( I have used 10 Monaco and 10 Tuc biscuits)
Onions- 2, finely chopped
Cucumber- 1, finely chopped
Green Chilies- 2, finely chopped

In a mixing bowl add in Bhelpuri masala powder (which comes with the ready mix Bhelpuri packet) with half glass of water.
Mix it well.
Add in green chilies, lemon juice, chopped onions, chopped cucumber, Bhelpuri pack and chutneys.
