Papdi chaat

Posted by

Papri chaat is like an explosion of different elements in terms of taste and texture. The most interesting part of this dish is the ”assemble” bit. What takes time is the preparation, but in the end, it’s all worth it. 

I usually prepare the chutneys a day before, and they can be stored for a couple of days in the refrigerator. 

Every Indian has an emotional connection with chaat. Chaat is a popular snack served mostly as street food. It is light, delicious, and made up of several ingredients that are pantry staples in Indian households.

Here I have used papdi, which are deep fried crisps. You can make your chaat healthy with sprouts, boiled potatoes, chickpeas and fruits like pomegranate arils. I prefer making chaat during summers as the whipped yoghurt helps us cool down. You can find the recipes of mint and tamarind chutneys in my previous blog post (just click on the link). I use dates as sweetener for my tamarind chutney. This can be fun family activity over weekend. there are no fixed rule as to what comes after what. My idea is to give you a basic idea. Hope you do have fun.
