Still remember those narrow lanes of old Delhi and the authentic, finger licking “Aloo Tikki Chaat” that one can find on the road side eatery. This inspired me to try this recipe out in the comfort of my own kitchen. Aloo tikki is a potato patty or cutlet made with boiled potatoes and few spices. It is served with chickpea curry and yoghurt topped with mint-coriander, tamarind / Imli chutneys. You can further try your hand by stuffing these potato based tikkies with peas or nuts like cashew and raisins. Stuffing varies as per region but the common among all is that, these are always served hot and crispy. These aloo tikki / potato patties also make perfect fillet between sandwich or burger.

Success of a good Papdi Chaat lies in how good the Papdi is. Papdis are deep fried, crisp, small flour crackers with either carom seeds or Kasuri Methi. They are used in most chaat snacks like Papdi Chaat, Sev Puri, Bhel Puri, etc. They can also be enjoyed just plain (and tastes similar to Namak Paray) or with a cup of tea as snack. Below is the “step by step pictorial recipe of how to make papdi”. I must add though its a bit of time consuming activity, end result is great and you can keep it preserved for long.
When you hear Kejriwal, rightly or wrongly, you get an image of Arvind Kejriwal. Surely am miles away from any politics, but have built a soft corner for Kejriwal….ummm…Eggs Kejriwal to be precise 🙂 During my visit to “Soda bottle opener wala” restaurant in India I saw “Eggs Kejriwal” in menu, I felt, I must try out to see what that is, and was pleasantly surprised to see its Cheese, Egg and Chilli Sandwich. Subsequently when back in London, I recently visited “Dishoom” restaurant in London, and I saw Eggs Kejriwal and tried that again. Basic recipe at both “Soda bottle Openerwala” as well as “Dishoom”, was similar with minor variation. This led me to try out the “Eggs Kejriwal Recipe” myself .
