Hope u all had a good holidays,for us we had a good time eating some good food. Lil A has one more week off before he goes back to nursery that means less blogging for one more week.
Coming to topic..Chaat is something which I enjoyed a lot during my stay in Pune, nobody will bother to make chaats at home when we get such delicious ones outside. After coming to London I have relished chaats from few of my North Indian friend's place quite a few times,In december one of my friend prepared this papdi chaat for her daughters birthday which I really enjoyed ,so finally I too thought of giving it a try after asking the recipe from her.I didnt get the papdi which she used,I went to an Indian store and picked up a packet with name papdi on it,but its different from the papdi I tasted,but still I loved every single bit of the chaat.I made a sweet and sour tamarind chutney to go with it which I will post soon.
Papdi - 1 packet
Chikpeas(cooked)- 1/2 cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp or as required

3.In a serving dish spread a layer of papdi.

5.Add the masalas and salt.
6.Drizzle some Tamarind chutney/green chutney over the chaat and enjoy.
