Is Sev Puri Healthy?

No, sev puri is not healthy. Made from papadis, potatoes, sev, chutney and coriander.

Let's understand the Ingredients.

What's good.

Onions (pyaz, kanda) :  Raw onions are a very valuable source of vitamin C – the immune building vitamin. Along with other phytonutrients from onions, it helps to build WBC (white blood cells) which serves as a line of defence against illness. Yes, it’s a source of many antioxidants, the most important one amongst them being Quercetin. The quercetin which promotes production of HDL (good cholesterol) and lowers total cholesterol in the body. The sulphur in onions act as a blood thinner and prevents blood clotting too. This in turn would lower blood pressure and good for heart diabetics. Read the benefits of onions

Coriander (kothmir, dhania) : Green chutney is made from coriander. The antioxidants vitamin Avitamin C and the quercetin present in coriander works towards strengthening our immune system.

What's bad.

Also when you use the same oil again for deep frying then smoking point decreases which leads to the development of blue smoke which is not good for health. It also increases inflammation in the body and shuts down the fat burning process.
