This is my first entry in chaat section. While in India, I never tried preparing any chaat because we used to get very good chaats at a walkable distance from home.
Some 3 years back, I never had any roadside chaats. But once I tasted it, I felt the taste is better than any good restaurants. So I just stopped eating them in restaurants and always used to have in roadside chaat vehicles. By god’s grace I never fell ill because of them, So it encouraged me to eat it more.
This is the first ever chaat I prepared.
Maida or all purpose flour 1/2 cup
Wheat flour 1/2 cup
Cumin powder 1/2 tea spn
Sweet chutney 2 tbl spns
Curd or yogurt 1 cup
Red chilli powder 1 tea spn
Chaat masala 1 tea spn
Coriander leaves 4-5 strands
Tomato(finely chopped) 1
Mix wheat flour, maida(or all purpose flour), salt and little water to make a dough. Cover it with damp cloth and keep aside for 10min.
Make small balls of the dough, roll it into tiny puris (make it to chapathi size and cut into small puris) and deep fry them in oil.
Mash potatoes lightly with hand. Keep the puris in plate, stuff them with potatoes. On this, spread sweet chutney, then a layer of curd or yogurt. Spread salt, chilli powder, chaat masala, coriander leaves, tomato and serve.
