    Sharing is caring:

    • If you want to make the bhel the next day or after 4-5 hours, store fried noodles in an airtight box.
    • After combining all the ingredients serve the bhel immediately else noodles lose their crunchiness and become soggy.
    • Seasoning quantity may be altered as per the taste preference. 
    • Don’t overcook the veggies.
