Us Indians are super proud when it comes to our street food, especially our chaats! There is no better comfort food than having a plate of bhel puri, papri chat, or dahi phuchka. Desis swear by it and foreigners are wow-ed by it. So when a British national set up a bhel puri stall in London, even Amitabh Bachchan couldn’t stop himself from sharing the news!
Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a video of a British bhel wala on Twitter which is winning hearts across the country!
The man had set up a small bhel stall outside London’s Oval Stadium during the India v/s Australia cricket match last Sunday. A few Indians who came to watch the match spotted him and recorded a video. The man can be seen effortlessly mixing all the ingredients including imli ki chatni, and claimed that he learnt how to make the snack from Kolkata, which FYI is actually called jhaal muri.
Extra points for making that paper cone!

The video, which has since then been making rounds on the internet, managed to impress Senior Bachchan who went on to share it on Twitter. He even used a hilarious pun to caption the video – “Bhery bhel done”!
