  1. Put the potatoes in a small pan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 18-20 minutes, until tender. Drain and set aside to cool, then peel and dice.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the chutney with the tamarind paste, yogurt, coriander and 3 tbsp water.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes with the chilli, pomegranate seeds, dates, tomatoes and shallot. Season to taste, and then gently fold in the rice cereal.
  4. Divide the bhel puri mixture between 4 serving cups or bowls and top each with a spoonful of the yogurt mixture. Sprinkle with coriander and serve with extra mango chutney on the side.
