Papdi Chaat

Papdi Chaat / पपड़ी चाट (also known as papri or paapri chat) is a popular Mumbai street-food, though  hails from North India mainly Delhi. So popular it is that you can find it easily on any eatery. Papdi chaat comprises of crispy flat deep fried puris (crisply fried dough wafers) made from ‘all purpose flour’ or maida served with chilled sweetened yogurt, boiled potatoes and chickpeas/sprouts, ‘date & tamarind chutney’, ‘mint coriander chutney‘, and sev topped with some dry spices. 

Being a Chaat lover, I make this quite often at home. With crunchiness of papdis, sweetness of  yogurt, tanginess from tamarind chutney, spiceness from ‘mint & coriander chutney’ and powdered spices this chaat gives you a burst of flavour in just one bite.

This snack is definitely a life saver when you get some unexpected guests and you don’t have much time to cook. With just few ingredients this can result into a big hit starter. 

Preparation time: 20 minutes
