Here's a healthy alternative to regular calorie-laden bhel. I've added mixed sprouts in this bhel as they are easier to digest and also abound in nutrients like protein, calcium, iron and vitamin C. Mixed with fruits like apple, orange and pomegranate and flavoured with lemon juice it makes a tantalizingly chatpata snack that’s sure to lift your spirits.

Tastier and healthier than the regular bhel, of course I did add the theeka and meetha chutney.The fruits give the bhel a very refreshing taste.

I was quite casual with the measurements for the fruits and sprouts but kept the proportions roughly. Be sure that you use sweet juicy tomatoes for the best taste. It's a wonderful nutritious snack. If I had had such dishes when I was a small child, I would never have made a fuss about eating fruits and sprouts!
