Bansi Golden Bhel: Disgrace

Most Oak Tree Road Indian grocery stores carry Bansi Golden Bhel. You can't miss the prominent boxes.

It must be bad Karma that led me to pick up the Bansi Golden Bhel Kit ($2.19) to satiate my Indian snack craving the other day at an Indian grocery store.

But one spoon of the Bhel Puri left an awful after-taste that I had to use a generous amount of Listerine to clean my mouth.

Truth be said, I was misled by the attractive picture on the box.

No, No, No, No

Bansi Golden Bhel mix included 8 small Puris, Sev, fried Beaten Rice (Poha, Atukulu, Avulakki), plain Boondi and some fried Peanuts. There were multiple problems with Bansi Golden Bhel:

Bansi Golden Bhel Kit Rating

If you crave Indian chaats and street food snacks like me, I suggest you run from this impostor of Bhel Puri even if it's given free.

Bansi Golden Bhel is not a treat but an atrocity of Brobdingnagian proportions. - ©
