Papdi Chaat

Rasika Dhadiwal @veggie-bites
Papdi chaat is mainly made of crispy papdis/ crackers made out of flour and salt . I used the market bought (Garvi snacks Papdi). These crackers are layered in potatoes or Ragda(Peas curry) and topped with onions, tomatoes, dips and chutneys like the sweet tamarind chutney and the coriander chutney. They are garnished with a whopping amount of sev(bhujiya) which goes on it and it tastes delicious.

  • Now drizzle the sweet yogurt over it.
  • Sprinkle some Chaat masala over it.

Notes

  • Papdi can be homemade or store bought.
  • When making with crackers ensure to make it just before eating as the crackers will soak the water in yogurt and become soggy soon.
  • You can use any other sprouts along with potatoes or even skip potatoes and use it.
  • Both the chutney recipes are on the link. Keep them handy always.
  • Chaat masala can be any store bought or homemade.
  • You can skip yogurt, but still enjoy the papdi Chaat
