Wai Wai Noodles Bhel

Wai Wai Noodles Bhel

Bhelpuri, commonly called bhel, is a popular savoury Indian snack and street food that originated on the Indian subcontinent. It is especially popular in Mumbai, which is the capital of the state of Maharashtra. Originally available only at the beaches in Mumbai, the snack became very popular and quickly spread to all parts of the city and beyond.

Typically, bhel is made with murmura (puffed rice), some vegetables and a couple of chutneys or sauces. This particular bhel recipe replaces the murmura with wai wai noodles. It makes for an interesting and yummy snack. Do try it and share your experience in the comments section below!

The dish looks absolutely delicious, Rajan. The ingredients you've used to make the dish are easy to find here. I've been to an Indian grocery store and bought many kinds of spices there. Thanks for sharing another great recipe, Rajan.

Peggy, when making noodles we use the accompanying seasoning packets but since this an Indianised dish we have used the spices we usually use in bhel. Thank you.

Never force yourself to eat what does not agree with you, Bill. Have a wonderful rest of the week my friend.

You can adjust the spice to your taste. Thank you, Pamela.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on August 24, 2020:

We get those little noodles in individual soup packets that also have the seasoning packets that are separate inside with the noodles. Your recipe has different ingredients added to the noodles but reminds me of a dish I used to make. Thanks for your recipe.

I ran into problems right away with the tomatoes. I won't eat them. It's a texture thing I just can't get beyond when eating them. Sigh! Well, have a wonderful week, my friend.

As usual, I would probably use less chili powder. This dish looks wonderful and I would like to try it out. Thanks for another good recipe.
