Papdi Chaat


Just unreal yummy! You can’t go to Delhi or Punjab without over indulging in chaat. Whether it’s aloo chaat, papdi chaat, or pani puri.

Papdi chaat is an explosion of yummy flavors. Sweet, spicy, tangy, chewy, crunchy, and so much more.

The best part about it is that you can easily prep the items and assemble the chaat on demand. Meaning, make a large batch of papdi, mint chutney, and tamarind chutney, and boom you have chaat anytime you want.

Given that you’ve done all the hard work on the front end. Assembling this chaat is fast and easy. Whether you’re just in the mood for some incredibly tasty junk food, or want to set it up as part of a chaat bar at a party.

Needless to say, that chaat isn’t just a snack, I’ve done chaat for dinner plenty of times. It’s just so tasty! Plus, I like to pretend it’s healthy because of the yogurt and veggies. Also, it’s just so damn delicious! How can you not make a whole meal of it. I mean, you’ve gone through the trouble of making the chutney, the papdi, boiling potatoes, and what not…and wasting is just bad. So chaat for dinner is just being a good person. Right? Right!

Clearly there is no such thing as enough chaat, so here’s a few more ideas:
