Bhelpuri in fact, has iconic status in western India! In Mumbai, vendors do brisk business preparing and selling it at every street corner! Its fame and popularity is no longer limited to this part of the country though and it is found pretty much all over India now. Bhelpuri's eastern Indian counterpart is called Jhaal Muri. This is spicier and contains signature east Indian ingredients like mustard oil. Both these delicious foods also make good entrées to a meal!
