Corn Boondi Bhel

As we all know that 'we' drool over chaat items irrespective of which part of the globe we are living :-p. For people who doesn't know about Chaat items (poor them) - 'Chaat' is a collective noun used for many spicy Indian snack items like Bhel Puri, Pani Puri, Masala Puri, Samosa, Cutlet, Dahi Puri, Papdi Chaat, Sev Puri, Aloo Tikki, Dahi Vada...........now how can anyone resist from this list :-p

Well as I said earlier never will Chaats get boring but still wanted to try something new. Corn Boondi Bhel is one such item which was as tasty as it looks :). Yes its a strange combination of crispy spicy Boondi with fresh Sweet Corn kernels. It might turn out a bit fiery for young kids. In that case, what you can do is skip the Boondi and Chillies then just mix rest of the ingredients with desired spice levels for a nutritious snack ;). This comes in handy for a post school evening snack, when you have flying visitors at home or justwith friends over for tea or even on a sluggish Sunday afternoons :-p....All said and done I don't need to find any reasons to eat Chaat !
