Who doesn’t love Chaat? Papdi Chaat is a yummy snack assorted with crunchy base of poori which is topped with lip-smacking chutneys, veggies and curd. Here is how to make it.
Chaat is one of the popular snacks in North India and owing to its inviting taste, it has become famous from Kashmir to Kanyakumari in India. Made using a motley of bases, chutneys, munchies and fresh ingredients, Chaat can be sweet, tangy, spicy or savoury! I don’t know a single person who doesn’t love Chaat. Do you?
Being from North India, I have had my fair share of Chaat and I cannot help but always have a jarful of Khajoor Imli Ki Chutney and Coriander and Mint Chutney stored in the refrigerator so that I can prepare a plateful of my favourite Chaat whenever I want.
I have tried various Chaat such as Bhel Puri, Dahi Puri but Papdi Chaat was a snack that I was yet to document in my food diary. Last week, I made Papdi Chaat so that I could share its recipe with everyone of you!
Papdi Chaat is a yummy snack assorted with crunchy base of Papdi (crisp puris) which is topped with lip-smacking chutneys, veggies and curd. The crispy Papdi topped with potatoes, onions, chickpeas, chutneys, curd and spices offers a gamut of flavours in its one morsel.
I am a big time fan of curd based chaat and Papdi Chaat got in good books as well. Papdi Chaat can be served for starters as well for snacks during evenings. I even host Chaat Party for my BFFs and turns out quite fun!
You can make Papdi Chaat healthier by using Baked Papdi, I had tried it as well and believe me, the taste is not at all compromised! So waiting for what? Do note the recipe of Papdi Chaat to try it at home:
