Bhel looks more like Chow Mien

the prep method is quite interesting, instead of using the sheng mian, its maggi being cooked first then fried..

@sadthe1st Oh well the bosses are complaining having to pay 2-3x wages to workers for public holidays...So it makes sense to not to...But if anyone who wants more holidays in a year, please come to Malaysia to work...

@sadthe1st You really made me count! 28 this year for National Hols alone! Coz it really depends if those national hols fall on Sun, then we have replacement on Mon. So ya...Work in Selangor better...I'm not sure about Johor...Next year we have 23, lesser coz we had additional 3 for the recent elections this year. But still double of what you have there! I've heard of some Sporeans come over to work. For the better quality of life here. You can leave sharp 6pm LOL...

I have a bone to pick with some of you.  Specifically any of you that know what Bhel is and never shared here ... 

 

Er, the bhel I know is bhel puri which hubs once in a while buys. There are plenty of Indian restaurants here, and breakfast earlier was dosha he picked up after work.

 

This is the bhel puri I'm familiar of. Not familiar with Chinese puri, but I'll keep it in mind now to check it out next time I go to a Chinese restaurant.

Also this, which can be purchased in most supermarkets here. It often comes with sauce packets inside to mix with the snack.

@joccu That’s a really nice way to remember your beloved cousin. May he RIP. 
 

@LeftCoastOppa Too funny you’re in the black hole of that height chart. I shared the chart with hubby, who falls in the optimal range. He’s asked if there’s a Women’s Height chart (so he can make fun of me; I’m on the shorter side). 
 

The only decent one I found was this:

kekeke... @LeftCoastOppa ~ am not sure if you will find bhel in a restaurant because it is not a restaurant type dish and more of street food.  however, it might be a different scene in the US though.

here, in some stalls, it is not called bhel but simply sold as chaat though the word chaat actually encompasses a whole range of dishes and textures. generally speaking, bhel is specifically a mix of crispy stuff with some dressing on top. 

 @sadthe1st - chaat (think hawker centre type snack) is specific to tea time. you know how british have the english tea and they eat sandwiches and other little dishes/snacks, chaat is similar in concept. it is sort of like appetizer and has a tangy, sweet sour type taste combos. so these stalls will sell from afternoon to early evening. within the restaurant scene, we generally find chaat items only within those sell tiffin items -- so stuff like dosa, idli, bajji, vada -- basically anytime small meals (tiffin). however, even in tiffin type restaurants, chaat is only sold in the afternoon to evening. 

 

@LeftCoastOppa ~ kind of long description note but there are different types of bhel -- 

the most basic is made out of something called sev / omapodi / chivda -- it is basically made of gram flour (a type of lentils) mixed in with rice flour. much of our snacks has rice flour or gram flour mix. you can buy this readymade as snack

 

Spoiler

 omapodi-recipe-2.jpg

 

1643703126-8907003500174.jpg

  

there is also something simliar to sev which is called bhujia -- it is a mixture of gram flour, potato and some other ingredients. so simliar crunch but a little different in taste. 

 

Spoiler

aloo-bhujia-namkeen-500x500.jpg  

 

 

 

 

 

you can also make bhel with something called boondi -- this is also made of gram flour and some other stuff. instead of long horizontal strips, it is round balls. 

 

Spoiler

boondi bhel

sometimes they will add it to yoghurt as part of raita (a yoghurt dip that you can have either with rice or any type of flat bread. it is basically a type of palate cleanser and to smooth out the spicy food you ate)

boondi-raita-is-north-indian-side-dish-v

 

boondi_front.jpg 

 

in some cases, bhel does not use sev/om podi but instead will have poha / aval which is rice flakes. you can use puffed rice as well for bhel. 

 

Spoiler

this is what plain aval / poha look like. the rice flakes tastes like a crispy version of rice.

this is what is called puffied rice. again simliar taste to poha

puffed rice bhel often sold as 'bhelpuri'

poha bhel

Poha-Bhel-2-1-1200x1800.jpg 

 

 

there is also what we call 'mixture' which is a mix of different types of fried items (such as sev, poha, nuts, raisins etc) and you can buy this snack from different brands. we usually munch this during our afternoon coffee/tea. there are many different types of mixtures and they have different flavours. no need to add any extra flavourings. just buy and eat them! 

 

Spoiler

this is one of my favourites -- fried potato, mixed nuts and raisins

another fav though you have to finish it fast or it will get soggy quickly. cornflakes mixture

1-1.jpg 

madras mixture -- has more of a spicy taste. 

8__87800.1643559044.jpg?c=2 

 

 

 

@LeftCoastOppa -- generally bhel is a mixture of all sorts of crispy stuff. if you cannot find bhel in a restaurant, here's what I would recommend -- we can easily make this home by simply buying one of these snack packets. what I do at home is buy sev + puffed rice / aval + boondi. if you can't find those, just buy a mixture packet which pretty much has all these ingredients in different ratios. then you can add in tomatoes, boiled potatoes, grated carrots, onions, maybe some yoghurt. if you have, then add some tamarind sauce or mint sauce or a dash of both. if not, just add any other spices and squeeze in lemon. and voila, crunchy snack / appetizer ready to eat. if you are not a fan of yoghurt, then only add in tomatoes and onions along with with a mix of sev + boondi and then whatever sauces you like.

 

basically we add whatever we want to make it sweet, tangy, sour and crunchy. hahahaha.. :D 

 

there is also something called 'chinese bhel' -- which is made from noodles. so they basically fry boiled noodles, add veggies and then sauces. maybe that is what you had. here are the recipies and what it looks like -- pretty easy stuff. 

https://www.tarladalal.com/crispy-fried-noodles-chinese-fried-noodles-4185r 

https://www.tarladalal.com/chinese-bhel--chinese-recipe--22758r 

 

hope that helps! I will post more chaat and snack type pics later through this week for you to get ideas. :)

Sweet Lord the kdrama Love Is For Suckers is baaaaaadddd..... It's not Eccentric Chef Moon level @larus, but it ain't far from it.

Seriously? Then I won`t bother to watch. From the pictures, it looked like the leads have a good chemistry but I guess the plot is bad. :( Curently I am not watching any kdrama but I have to pick one drama. I am thinking of Queen`s Umbrella, First Responders or Shadow Detective for the moment.

kekeke...to be fair to @LeftCoastOppa, other places like the US don't have concepts like tiffin and tea. so it would be easy to assume that you can get them in restaurant. :D so to explain, we have breakfast, lunch and dinner -- your regular full meals. then you have small meals/snacks times. the midday (around 10-11AM) is what we call tiffin. you can get a variety of fried snacks as well as small meals (such as breakfast items) that you can eat along with your cup of coffee/tea. then we have tea time (3-5 PM) where we also have some snacks along with coffee/tea. both these food genre (is that the right word?) are not something you would find in big restaurants because they only serve lunch and dinner. some of these fried snacks can easily be bought readymade at any department store or sweet shops or bakeries while others have to be made in a stall or those small tiffin type restaurants (and these are open through the day and they serve only small meals and breakfast items). 

 

@sadthe1st -- I make poha bhel with yoghurt because thats how we like it at home but it all depends on the stall. some will not sell it that way. 

 

as for muruku, here it refers to a specific type of snack that is made out rice flour though it might look different in width and teeth depending on the press they use to squeeze out the flour ringlets before frying.

to be fair, a good chunk of south indian snacks are all made out of rice flour as the base and so I can see why they just label the aisle 'muruku'. :lol: you can also have muruku made out of ragi or millet flour but am not a fan of those. give me rice anyday! hahahahah... :lol:
