Sev Puri Recipe | How to make Mumbai Sev Puri Chaat

Jump to Recipe

Sev puri is one of the popular Indian chaat. The combination of papdi (crispy flat puri), sev (deep fried gram flour noodles), boiled potatoes (batata), onion and assortment of chutneys like green chutney and tangy tamarind chutney make it simply irresistible. 

Sev Puri also known as “Sev Batata Puri” is an Indian Street food snack where the layers of ingredients are assembled on a flat crisp called Papdi.


  • Sev Puri Papdi’s / Puri’s – These are thin flat disks of crisps made with Whole Wheat flour or a combination of WholeWheat Flour and All Purpose flour { Maida }. Make them at home or buy them from grocery store.
  • Potato – Also called as ‘Batata’. The Potatoes are boiled well, peeled and cubed or roughly mashed. I do season them with a bit of salt.
  • Green Chutney – Also known as Coriander Mint Chutney. This Chutney is absolutely essential in the preparation of any chaat.
  • Tamarind Chutney– Also known as Tamarind Date Chutney or Sonth. This Chutney is also an essential ingredients for chaat.
  • Sev – Sev is a gram flour thin noodles that can be bought from any stores.
  • Onions – Finely Chopped Onions will add a crunch to the Sev Puri Chaat.
  • Spice Powders – Red Chilli Powder, Roasted Cumin Powder & Chaat Masala.

The Best part about making chaat is that chutney’s can be made a few days in advance and stored in refrigerator. If I manage to make large portions, I store them in individual small containers and freeze them. In that way, Chutney’s are always ready at home and you can enjoy street food in minutes!

Tips and Variations:

  • For variation, add boiled chana (black gram) or boiled moong.
  • Add curd and garlic chutney to make it more spicy.
  • Add finely chopped green raw green mango for delicious tongue tickling tang.
  • Adjust the quantity of chutneys to your taste.
