The effort paid off. On our recent camping trip, we prepared a simple snack of bhelpuri with fava beans.
Here's the recipe:
1 pack Haldiram's ready-to-eat bhel puri
1 cup fava beans blanched and peeled
1/2 cup red onion diced fine
1/2 cup red bell pepper diced fine
1/2 cucumber diced fine
half a lemon/lime
pinch salt if required
Mix all ingredients including the sauce packets in the bhelpuri mix. Squeeze half a lemon/lime and mix again and eat.
(Disclaimer: This snack tastes best if enjoyed in the outdoors under towering redwood trees amidst bright green fern growing alongside a gurgling creek.)
Submitted this concoction to "Sunday Snacks - Chaats" event at All Thingz Yummy blog. Hope it doesn't get disqualified for taking a shortcut and using ready-made bhel.
