BM #86 Week 4 Day 1 - 

This week I shall post some bookmarked recipes which we have enjoyed at home.

In my childhood days, it was almost a weekly routine to mix pickle in either flattened rice or murmura. But this idea of adding apple and the rest of the ingredients was given by my friend. 

The spicy taste of the pickle balanced by the apple, the crunch of roasted peanuts and sev, was a true delight. A delicious and spicy twist to the traditional Bhel!!
