Kalyan Bhel

When you think about chaats, paani puri and bhel, you cannot not think about Kalyan Bhel. Undoubtedly, the oldest chaat house in Pune, Kalyan Bhel now has branched out to various areas across the city.

We loved their dahi bhel! Every spoonful of this creation is a celebration inside your mouth. There’s a right amount of tanginess and sweetness that balances out the flavours from chopped onions, herbs and raw mangoes. Over and above everything, this comes for INR 70 to satiate your hunger pangs.

Try out the S.P.D.P, a delectable combination of sev puri and dahi puri. The dish redefines ‘street chaat’ experience in every possible way — the crunchiness of the sev, mixed and tossed nicely in the sweetness of the red chutney and curd, sprinkled with green chillies. This is what you will get for just INR 70! Chaat lovers, are you reading this?
