What is Geela Bhel Puri?

In Mumbai, Bhelpuri is generally divided into two categories, i.e. Geela Bhel or Sukha Bhel.

Geela Bhel Puri :- Geela in English means “Wet”. Geela Bhel Puri is such where lots of chutneys are used to prepare the dish which makes it wet.

Sukha Bhel Puri:- Sukha means “Dry”. So, for preparing this, no chutneys are used and the bhel puri is totally dry which adds a good crunchiness to the dish.
