Step 2

To make the potato-cheese pops, boil the potatoes, peel them and mash with a masher. Grate the cheese and add to the batter. You can alternately use panir to make the pops too. Add the salt, pepper powder, red chilly powder,garam masala, dry mango powder, oregano. Add the gram flour to the batter and make small balls from it and deep fry in oil.

Step 4

Step 5

Fry the cashews and peanuts too. Chop the coconut into bite-sized pieces. Chop the cilantro and the mint leaves. Also, chop the pineapple into small pieces.

Step 6

To assemble the dish, take a plate and put the fried garbanzo beans in it. Now top it with fried fish fritters and potato-cheese pops. Next, add the chopped coconut pieces, peanuts,cashews,raisins and the diced pineapple. Splutter some fried mint leaves on top.Add some namakpare too.

Step 7

To make the topping sauce, take some tamarind paste, add water and sugar into it. Now make a chutney from coriander and mint and keep aside. Finally just before serving drizzle the tamarind sauce over the bhel. Then add the green chutney. You can add some dry mango powder chutney too. Squeeze some lemon juice over the bhel. Toss everything well and serve immediately.

Our yummy Fish Bhel is done. Serve it as a morning, brunch or evening snack. You can add some mayonnaise or mustard sauce also over the bhel to get that extra punch.
