1. To make red chilli garlic chutney, soak red chilies in some hot water. When they soften add them to a blender jar along with garlic, salt and sugar. Make a fine paste adding more water as needed. You can use the chilli soaked water to blend the chutney. Set these aside.
2. Making green chutney – Add all the ingredients to a blender jar. Add very little water and make a fine chutney. Set this chutney. You can also check this detailed post on green chutney.
3. To make tamarind chutney, place tamarind and jaggery in a bowl and pour very hot water just enough to cover them. Add red chili powder,salt cumin and coriander powder. When the mixture cools down, squeeze well & pass it through a strainer. Add ginger powder and salt. Mix well and set aside.
How to make sev puri
1. Arrange puris in individual serving plates.
2. Place sliced potatoes, you can also just crumble and add them.
3. Add a generous amount of garlic chili chutney. I prefer to make the chutney thick. This prevents the papdis from turning too soft quickly.
4. Place some onions on each puri.
5. Top with some tamarind chutney. Same here I prefer the tamarind chutney to be slightly thick. You can add more water if you desire.
6. Then some green chutney on top. Sprinkle chaat masala.
7. Top with a generous amount of nylon sev. Sprinkle some coriander leaves.
Serve sev puri immediately.
