Recipe by  Rani

“Chaat is a broad term that encompasses many different dishes. This recipe is made of yogurt and potatoes and other chaat sauces. You may need to make a trip to an Indian grocery store to stock up on spherical 'puris' (also called as pani-puri puris), 'sev', green chutney, and a sweet and sour chutney. I have tried here to give as many substitutions as possible, if you are unable to go to an Indian grocery store. However, you will definitely lose the authentic taste if you make substitutions. If you can find them, use black salt in place of the rock salt, spherical puris in place of the wheat crackers, and plain sev in place of the crushed potato chips.”

Directions

  1. Boil the garbanzo beans in water for about 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork; drain well.
  2. Beat the yogurt together with the following: fresh grated ginger, chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, rock salt or black salt, black pepper and salt.
  3. Season the mashed potato with salt.
  4. Break each puri gently with a fork to create a tiny opening on the top. Arrange the puris in 4 plates, 8 in each plate. Or, if using wheat crackers arrange them on a platter or plates. Place the potatoes on top of each cracker. Place about 1 tablespoon of potato in each puri or on each cracker. Place a few garbanzo beans on top of the potato. Spoon the spiced yogurt on top. Spoon green chutney and sweet and sour chutney on top of it. Garnish with the chopped onion, cilantro, and sev on top. Serving tip: I like to set up a number of small bowls with each of the above condiments, so that each person can add whatever they want to, according to their taste and preferences.

I loved it, particularly because it can be accomplished even by us poor people in the central european wasteland, where you can not simpl go to ยด"your local indian grocery store", as many recipe authors advise, and find "sev", "golgappa" or the like in abundance... it has been an absolute smash hit at my last birthday party.

This is a fabulous recipe!! I made it for a group of non-Indian friends and they loved it!! I made the Indian version, and my family loved it too. It was very easy, and very tasty.

Fantastic. Just like the dahi puri I used to eat in India. You can find black salt in the International foods section of most grocery stores. Be sure to have everything ready before you start topping the puri. If you take your time, they'll become soggy. Thanks for a great recipe!
