I'm a very big lover of chat... And I can live having it all time but my tummy hates what my taste buds love... So I prefer having light chat item and I usually order chat with curd and that’s also tastes great with a combination of curd and chat masala... I saw this recipe in Sanjeev Kapoor...
The recipe was simple and had light chat masala items without sweet and spice chutney. So dint have a second thought and tried out immediately... No wonder it tasted great with the crunchiness of corn flakes and peanuts...I don't like to eat raw red onion I feel they have a strong onion flavor... So I used yellow onion have a mild flavor and mellow of yellow onion and capsicum worked out well...Give a try and kids will love it...
Corn - 1/2 cup(I used frozen)
Peanuts - 1/4 cup
Yellow onion - 1/2
Corn flakes - 1/3 cup(I used nestle whole grain cornflakes)
Chaat masala - 3/4 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 tbs
Coriander leaves - 1 tbs(chopped)
Oil - 1/8 tsp
Green capsicum - 1 tbs
Red capsicum - 1 tbs
Green chilly -1(de seeded)
Take frozen corn and boil for 2-4 mins and drain excess water and set a said to cool down completely.
Take a kadai add in little oil first saute the green chills followed by green and red capsicum.Then take all the ingredients needed and set a said.
Then take a bowl add in all the ingredients except peanuts and cornflakes,then when your about to serve add in cornflakes and peanuts and give a quick stir.
Serve this simple,delicious and sooper crisp corn peanut bhel and enjoy!
Sauteing capsicum and green chilly is purely optional,i don't like the rawness of capsicum so i sauteed ed,so its optional.
The amount of chaat masala and lime i have used is mild,so if you want more of chaat flavor increase the quantity.
I have used frozen corn,you can replace with fresh ones also,add the cornflakes at last or just when your about to serve,the crisp of cornflakes is main key to the bhel.
