Sev Puri is one of the most popular street food which is loved by all the age groups. It is a tangy, sweet and spicy Chaat/Snack. Crispy papdis, boiled potatoes, chutneys for chaat and nylon sev make it a medley of flavours that tantalizes the taste buds.

Chaat - Indian Street Food and Snacks
In India chaats are very popular evening snacks and street food and people love to gorge on plateful of these. Bhel puri, Pav Bhaji, Vada Pav, Aloo Tikkis, Bhalla Papdi(Dahi Bhalle/Vade served with papdi) are few of the famous chaat items. There is variation in the chaat recipes across India. Like Aloo Tikki with Chole(chickpeas) masala is famous in North India and Ragda Patties is from Mumbai/West India.
At least chaat item adrons the menu in Indian parties and get togethers.
Sev Puri/Papdi is my one of the favourite chaat recipes and I love to serve it to my guests. My kids love Sev Papdi. My teenage daughter likes it with spicy chutney and son likes to have it with sweet tamarind chutney.
What is Sev Puri
Sev consists of small pieces of deep fried chickpea noodles. There is lot of variation in sev recipes.
For Sev Papdi we use very thin sev known as Nylon Sev. You can buy pack of Nylon Sev from Indian Grocery store or order from amazon. If you have Sev Making Machine, you can easily make it at home.
Puri is Papdi- In Maharashtra and Gujarat it is known as Puri whereas in North India it is known as papdi. It is crispy deep fried Indian cracker made with flour. Store bought papdis are usually deep fried. Incase you want less oily, you can bake at home or buy the baked ones.
Checkout Papdi Katoris(deep fried and baked) to serve Dahi Vade or other chaat items. Bhalla Papdi Reconstructed.
Most of the times I keep a batch of these Crispy Masala Papdi(Air Fryer and Baked) with whole wheat flour for kids snacking or our tea time and also use it to make Sev Papdi chaat or bhalla papdi.
Ingredients for Sev Puri
To make sev puri the ingredients like Papdi and Sev can be store bought or can be homemade. Other ingredients like Chutneys for Chaat nowadays are available in markets. But, I prefer to make the chutneys especially at home.
Puri/Papdi- Crispy deep fried or baked papdis. For Crispy Air Fryer Papdis Click HERE
Sev- Prefer Nylon Sev, if not available, use any thin variety sev. You can make it at home too. Will update the recipe soon.
Boiled Potatoes and Sprouts- Only potatoes with onions are preferred but, to add some nutrition you can add sprouts like moong sprouts. Those who avoid potatoes in their diet can add boiled sweet potatoes.
