Chinese bhel recipe with step by step pics. Chinese bhel is an adaptation of veg chopsuey recipe and also a fusion recipe that is made for indian tastebuds. Similar to bhel puri, chinese bhel has sweet, tangy and spicy taste. This recipe of chinese bhel is too delicious and tastes exactly like a chaat snack.
in chinese bhel, fried crispy noodles are used with stir fried veggies and a few sauces. When I make chinese bhel I prefer to use sweet tamarind chutney as it gives a really nice sour and sweet taste in the bhel. To make this bhel you need to use three different types of sauces or chutneys – a spicy sauce, a sweet sauce and a tangy or sour sauce. You can even use green chutney or red chili chutney or schezwan sauce.

To make chinese bhel recipe:

  • The sauces I have used are soy sauce (naturally fermented), sweet tamarind chutney and sriracha sauce. Instead of sriracha sauce you can use red chilli sauce or sweet chilli sauce. Instead of sweet tamarind chutney you can use tomato ketchup. In fact you can use a combination of your favorite sauces.
  • You can add veggies of your choice. veggies that can be added are cabbage, carrots, baby corn, capsicum (bell pepper) and boiled sweet corn. You can also add some sprouts if you want.

For making chinese bhel, noodles are cooked and then deep fried. In this post I have shared the method of deep frying noodles.

Since cooking and frying takes some time, I fry the noodles a day earlier and keep them stored in an air-tight container. Then the next day I just need to chop the veggies and stir fry them. So less time is taken. If you use readymade fried noodles than within 15 to 20 minutes you can make chinese bhel.

Serve chinese bhel as soon as you assemble it. While serving you can garnish chinese bhel with some chopped coriander leaves and spring onion greens.
