Cornflakes Bhel, healthy twist

Chaats are always welcome at home. They are cherished and enjoyed by both the children. Here is a twist to the usual Bhel Puri. Cornflakes Bhel is a healthy twist to the usual one. It makes a good snack to binge in the evenings.

You can use any plain (unsweetened) cornflakes. I tried used organic ragi flakes and it was awesome. There was hardly any change in taste. A few ingredients on hand and you have just got to mix them in a bowl and enjoy!

It is ideal to store dates chutney in the refrigerator. It is handy to use in these snacks.

My other chaat recipes are Bhel Puri  Ragda Patties Corn chat

Happy to inform you all that my e-book “30 Tasty Dal Recipes” is   available on all Amazon websites. Do grab a copy of it. If you get the book, please leave a review later. It encourages me to write more.

    Great recipe – thanks for sharing. This is similar to my mom’s recipe, except I think she adds red onion, peanuts and green chilis. I’m not familiar with date chutney, can you substitute tamarind chutney? Thank you!
