Sev puri is an Indian snack and a type of chaat.[1] It is a speciality that originates from Mumbai.[2] In Mumbai, sev puri is served by street vendors as well as five star hotels.[1] Recently, supermarkets have started stocking ready-to-eat packets of sev puri and similar snacks like bhelpuri.[3]


Although there is no fixed recipe for sev puri, the basic ingredients used widely are the same. Sev puri is essentially made of puri which is loaded with diced potatoes, onions, three types of chutneys: tamarind, chili and garlic and topped with sev. It is seasoned with raw mango, when raw mango is in season or with a hint of lemon and chaat masala.[4]


Sev puri can be made with a variety of fillings and garnishing ingredients. Some popular variations are dahi sev batata puri (sev puri with yogurt and potato), palak sev puri (Sev Puri with spinach) and corn sev puri. Sometimes mint chutney and paneer are also added in its preparation.[5]
