For Samosa Chaat, you will need:
Samosa – Flaky and crispy Samosa filled with spicy hot masala. You can use any Samosa with your choice of savoury filling to make this Chaat.
Ragda – You can make Ragda with the White Matar or Kabuli Chana! I have tried both of them and either of them taste great in the Chaat.
Chutneys – Like any Chaat, you will need Coriander Mint Chutney and Sweet Tamarind Chutney. These chutneys add a delicious tangy, sweet and spicy flavour in the Chaat. You can even add garlic Chutney in this Chaat, if you like it extra spicy.
Yogurt – Whisk the curd properly until it is smooth in texture and then use in the Chaat. You can also add in a little sugar in the whisked yogurt.
Toppings – Top the Samosa, yogurt and chutneys with green chilies, finely chopped onions, red chilli powder, chaat masala, roasted cumin powder and coriander leaves. Also sprinkle some fine sev, it adds to the texture and taste of the Chaat.
How to make Samosa for this Chaat?
I often make homemade Samosa with Aloo filling for this Chaat. You can find the recipe here – Halwai Style Punjabi Samosa.
Can you prepare the Samosa beforehand?
You can fill the samosa pastry with aloo filling and store in the fridge. Fry them when you want to serve them.
If you fry and keep, it won’t be crispy and the outer layer will become soft and won’t taste good in the Chaat.
You can prepare the chutneys, ragda beforehand and store. So that while serving, you just have to fry Hot Samosas and top them with chutney, curd and spices.
