Me and H are really missing Indian chat items after moving here.We are really carving for them.
We have to travel miles to taste chats and make our-self happy.Last time when we had been to NY, he started searching for chat center with Google maps in hand. I really felt bad about that and decided to prepare all chat items at home and make him happy.
I came across so many recipes for different chats.I filtered them according to our taste and according to methods I used to observe from chatwal's of namma benagaluru.
So here is the recipe for my first attempt in one of great Indian chat.
You Need To Have:
4 Cups Puffed Rice/Kadalepuri
1 tsp Jeera Powder/jeerige pudi
1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder/accha kharada pudi
Salt to taste
4-5 Papdi/Chat Puris(if you have any leftovers)
1/2 Cup Sev
4 tsp Sweet Chutney
4 tsp Green Chutney
1/2 Cup Smashed Boiled Potatoes
1/2 cup finely chopped Onion
1/2 cup finely chopped tomato
1/2 cup finely chopped Coriander Leaves
Take puffed rice in large mixing bowl.Add potato,tomato,onion,crushed papdi(or chat puri).
Sprinkle sweet and green chutney followed by jeera powder, chilly powder and salt.
Quickly mix them together and garnish with sev and finely chopped coriander.
