In Gujarat where I spent my childhood, I have seen so many recipes of using popcorn or puffed sorghum. I guess if popcorn was left over, then many different snacks and recipes could be made from it. DHULETI - on this day these snacks can be made with little cooking.

One such recipe is POPCORN BHEL or CHAAT. In all honesty, there is hardly any recipe here, just preparing the ingredients and mixing together and enjoy with friends and family. This snack can be made ahead once you are ready to serve just put all the ingredients together and enjoy.


Recently British company from sunny Devon Portlebay Popcorn sent me their range of popcorn which is hand popped in Devon. Flavours including Chilli and Lime, Cinnamon, sea salted and sweet and salty, Wasaabi and Sweet Ginger and Sweet Thai Sriracha. Enjoyed all the flavours and now it is very hard to choose a favourite!


This chaat turned out so well and delicious, no one even mentioned needing any tangy, sweet or spicy chutney for this chaat whilst we ate it. Without that chutney, the chaat was still full of all of those flavours!



Notes:-
I have used black chickpeas here, but you can use white chickpeas too.
Chaat masala is available in any Indian store. If you can not find chaat Masala use lemon juice.
