Although every Mumbai visitor never misses eating sev puri, those who eaten the same thing over the years do grow weary of it. Here is a recipe for all those who agree with me. Similar but yet very different from the traditional sev puri.

Baked papadis or little puris are topped with sweet corn and crunchy onions spiked with a tangy ajwain (carom) flavoured tomato chutney. These puris are truly divine and a must try.

All that is required to be kept ready is a batch of baked papadis which can be stored in an air-tight container. You can then easily whip up this recipe at any time of the day when unexpected guests arrive.
