The Indian cuisine repository is filled with recipes and flavours of all kinds – sweet, salty, tangy, and spicy – name it, and you have it. A quick look at the food consumed across different states and regions will tell you that we take Gastronomy quite seriously. We love our food so much so that it has a bearing on our culture as well. Be it the daily meals, or snack time munchies, we love nothing less than delicious food, and feel extremely happy when we get our ‘Pet Poojas’ right. The sheer number of restaurants, and the kind of cuisines that they serve is a testimony to our love and obsession for food. India is also a land of street food. There are probably as many streets food vendors as restaurants in every part of India, if not more. These people serve you popular cuisines of all kinds – from simple home style food to exclusive recipes that are hard to find even in the most posh hotels or restaurants around the country. Of the many kinds of street food vendors who line up on the streets every evening, the chaat walas are probably our favourite. Tea time or after office hours are incomplete without a customary visit to the chaat wala who serves lip smacking and delectable street food at just a fraction of the price in a restaurant. Chaats fill not just our tummies but also our minds as most of them serve as chit-chat times as well. A hearty laugh here and a little gossip there with friends or loved ones is also another reason why we love our eat-outs at chaat corners. The great thing about chaat recipes is that these snacks bring together a whole lot of ingredients packed with nutrients. The base of these chaats like potatoes and papdis are rich in carbohydrates. Serve them for snacks or even a main meal, they are quite satisfying. I have curated a collection of Best Chaat Recipes which can be easily made at home and they taset great too.

The chutneys like Khajoor Imli Ki Chutney, and the Coriander and Mint Chutney, which accompany almost all chaat recipes, are packed with essential minerals and vitamins like Iron, Thiamin, Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E. Recipes that use curd or dahi bring in the goodness of calcium and proteins. Chaats, though eaten as snacks, are filling meals by themselves. Precisely why we all have that one friend who has a habit of skipping his/her dinner after having a plateful of chaat.
