Sev Puri Recipes With Chef Kaviraj Khialani

Sev Puries, one of those tempting words which makes us feel hungry and gets our appetite charged up wanting to have the delicious and world famous street side favorite food. If we look back in time I have been enjoying it since my childhood and we were always so excited and waiting for the evenings to come by so that we could find a reason to go down looking for a break from studies to the nearby sev puri wala who would be all set with his pre-prepared ingredients waiting for the line of people to start post sunset. 

Being a chef today when I look back, it was such a mesmerising moment to see him make these sev puries, he was so good and accurate at portioning the toppings on each puri and without even having a taste of them it would turn out to be just perfect each time we had it, that was one of the things to learn about being organised, keeping things in place, how to carry out standard portion size of the preparation and how to maintain taste, the crowd and the fan-following as well. I truly believe that there is something to learn from every day and every person we come across.

To me sev puries then became a dish to innovative with and I started working on it in my home kitchen initially trying out fancy and weird combinations at times which would somehow turn out to be nice once the toppings, loaded with chutneys, chaat masala, sev etc were all dressed up.  Working on using leftovers on sev puries, mix- n- match combinations, getting into fusion varieties and then creative global gastronomy with this concept has ever since been a great journey.

Here are some of my twists on the regular sev puri concepts which I am sure you all will love trying out in your kitchens as well:

“Sev Puri, the term itself is not only tempting but also brings about a number of ideas and concoctions which can be prepared and served. It is one good way to de-stress, pamper, excite your taste buds & treat your palate”- Dr. Kaviraj Khialani- Celebrity Master Chef.
