Dahi Sev Puri is a summer season food, an appetizer, Indian street food that no one can resist! Soft boil potatoes, sweet curd, tangy chutneys, crispy sev, nutty boiled chana, and fresh flavors of raw onion, tomatoes, and coriander gives the dish a delectable taste.
Yes! When it comes to Indian snacks, it definitely hits the top of the charts. Filled with boiled potatoes, chutneys (Indian homemade sauces), chilled and beaten yogurt/curd, and topped with nylon sev (fried thin gram flour vermicelli), pomegranate, boiled chana, and coriander. It is a tangy, spicy, sweet, and crispy chaat with flavors and textures bursting in the mouth.
Although it needs a lot of preparation and it quickly disappears in parties if kept as appetizers. One can prepare the chutneys a day before. Puri’s can be bought ready-made or made at home. Puri’s have a long shelf life and can be kept for 8-10 days.

    The leftover yogurt can be used for sweet lassi or Dahi vada.

    Mashed potatoes can be refrigerated and used the next day for sandwiches, pani puris, parathas, or bread rolls.
