Sambar Bhel Puri

Hope I don't sound nuts with a recipe title like this :( Well, the fact is, yeah, it is a bhel puri made out from sambar(mostly leftover sambar @ my place) and I had no other name for it...for me n my family, it sure is an easy breezy way of preparing bhel puri...n tatz hw i ended up with this name...Hope i've done justice...If no, Sorry, I can't change it ;) So juz bear with me :D

Coming to how this recipe started...This has been hovering around me since my childhood days n as far as i remember this came from my bro, who loves to experiment his food. During one of our summer
holiday visits to Coimbatore this recipe was declared as an official family fav :) All my cousins, bro n me are die-hard fans of the bhel puris, especially the roadside prepared ones..hehehe...I knw itz nt healthy..bt it was yummy...Once again, for me, taste goes first...i was nt so very health conscious atleast in my childhood days....as a matter of fact, who wud ever be.... Coming back to the story, we were so crazy abt it tat v wud end up asking it almost 3 times a week...Since parents, had to act like parents, they wud say a big "NO" to it if asked more than once a week...Tatz wen v ended up with the plan of preparing bhel puri ourselves...hmm...once again was forced to prepare a recipe ;) V had puffed rice(pori) and the basic veggies like onion and tomboys(Tomatoes)...wat v did nt have was the sauce...all we had was the sambar my chithi prepared for the day....So we went with it...We also added some tomato ketchup to it, cos u knw, No Kid says NO to Tomato ketchup :D We were no different......n when v tasted it, we went yummmmmmmmm......Since then itz been our official kids fav sambar bhel puri :) Thou I've termed it as Kids fav, even nw, I make sure, I prepare extra sambar so that I can have my share of bhel puri from it :)
