Bhel at home

Last Christmas I had an amzing holiday with my friends and families in India. I ate waaay too much of street food such as Bhel and pani puri (I can not get enough of it). So, last evening with on of my families baba took to a streeet food restaurant. My sister and brother ate so many plates as we could and even more. We had a great time, and guess what baba found?
He found bhel package to carry the bhel home. So, he bought it and gifted the bhel to me.
I have had the bhel in the package for every since last christmas, but now the package is open. And even if the flavour is not the same as the bhel in Pune. But it is so good to have bhel again! I loved it and was very happy to eat bhel with a friend. Anyway, the thing is bhel taste the best in India, on the street and see bhai preparing the dish extramly fast. while waiting on the snacks you chat with friends, see the traffic passing by. While having it home the whole environment is missing…

Oh this food from last evening was a bit too spicy for me. Too hot and it is burning. I can promise the food had a lot of garlic. But the cooking took such a long time. More or less 2 hours but it turn out really nice. THe chickens meat were soft. I can not wait to get some proper food. On the other side, Indian food smells a lot while cooking. I mean, a lot the clothes get the smell too….
Anyway, sometimes it is fun too cook non common food.

I am so sorry for the bad picture, but it is not easy to be still with a lot of things going on in a super small kitchen.
My friend spoke about the spices and how the onions should look like and much more.

We made chicken and added some milk in the gravy to make the gravy less thin. However, the smell of the food was amazing. The taste was good too, better than many resturants!

Also, I made chapati 1 out of 3 was full with air, that is how chapati should be on the pan.
