If you taste dough balls that are full of other ingredients will give you a sour taste. Personally, I prefer sweet-sour rather than chili one. I suggest you both of the sour to taste as it varies from person to person.

2. Bhelpuri

Like fuchka Bhelpuri is visually the same but few of the ingredient is different. The dough size of bhelpuri is bigger and thinner than fuchka. Bhelpuri is a bit crunchy but here there is no use of egg as fuchka’s one.

3. Haleem

Haleem is a combination of different pulses, spices, and beef. Among all ages of people, it’s a popular item. It is really hard to explain the exact taste. Whenever you taste haleem the chili and spicy flavor will give you a different experience. If you don’t like chili items then you can add some lemon or tarmac sour to reduce the chili taste.
