If you were to type the words ‘golden bhel’ in google, you are most likely to see the address of the famous street side vendor in Mumbai who is the creator of this delectable chaat. Hidden away from a busy street, in a residential complex, this vendor is most popularly known for his golden bhel, named so due to its colour. A must-have chaat that is perfectly spicy due to his signature ‘golden chutney’ that is generously mixed over fried poha (no murmura here!), potato and onion mix.

It is hot spicy but the contrast with the mellow potato and crunch from the fried poha makes a bite worth asking a bottle of cold water for! Of course, on request, he customizes the spice level getting it just right for each of his customers. The distinct taste of his golden chutney makes or breaks this simply addictive bhel. In fact, I have seen so many his customers requesting for that signature chutney to carry home too.

Inspired by this delectable chaat, here is my version of his famous golden bhel. The quantity of the golden chutney in my recipe makes about ¾ cup of dry spicy goodness but customize it according to your needs. Make it thinner by adding water or increase or reduce the number of chilies as per your preference.

I like to use store bought diet chivda pack for this bhel, however you could use homemade chivda as well as long as the chivda is made of thick poha. The thin poha chivda with the chutney won’t give the same textural bite and in fact will turn quite mushy.

It is a great party food too, quick and easy. Best of all, your guests can customize as per their need and unlike a regular bhel, this one doesn’t need too many condiments. It is also gluten free as well as vegan too.
