Bhel Puri

Our culture quest
in Hoptown is never ending. And we always seem to find ourselves in colorful new places, like this Indian festival that our neighbor Ravi invited us to.

I LOVE Indian food. This dish is called Puri. It's like the Indian version of taco salad with a base of savory rice-krispie-like cereal instead of tortilla chips. Over that is a layer of toasted chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, potatos, green chili sauce, sweet brown sauce and fresh cilantro. They also gave us sandwiches to blot our tongues from the spicy-ness of the dish. I didn't need mine (it had american cheese and mayo on it). To borrow a term from Matt, it was Delicious!
