Your local chaatwalla bhaiya ji can move over. Sev Puri dough is wrapped onto cones and fried till crispy and then stuffed with a chatpata Potato filling, with Chutney and topped with crispy Sev.

If you’re familiar with Indian street food – Sev Puri is a crispy flour disk, topped with a spicy potato mixture and topped with Sev, a cripsy noodle made with lentil flour. Typically the bhaiyaji or street vendor will prepare about 6 of these and serve these to you on a plate. I’ve taken the same concept and instead of buying store bought puris, I’ve made the dough and rolled them out larger to make cones.

This elevated street food snack is perfect for picnics and parties. This recipe makes about 20 cones, you can make these ahead and store them in tins for maximum freshness.
