Peach Bhel - AFAM peach

I wanted to participate in the AFAM-Peach event hosted by Mansi of fun and food. But since I was out of time I decided to try a twist to the traditional bhel. I skipped both onions and tomatoes and added peach, mango and pomegrante seeds instead. The bhel tasted perfect with the right amount of spice, salt, sourness and crunch.

Ingredients:

Peaches (cubed) - 1/2 cup
Mango (raw) (cut into small pieces) - 2 tbsp
Pomegranate seeds - a handful
Mamra (puffed rice) - 1 cup
Sev - 2 tsp
Mint chutney - as needed
Sweet chutney -as needed
Chilli sauce - as needed
Salt - a pinch
Cilantro leaves - for garnishing

Method:

Mix all the ingredients well and give the bowl a good shake. Serve immediately.
