Papdi Chat

Papdi Chat is one of the famous Indian fast food and it is one of my favorite too. When the weather is dull and gloomy, a plate of this crunchy, spicy delicacy can do all to make your day and perk your mood. Most pf the time I have papdis made well in advance, as they cant be stored and keeps well for a month or so and as in most Indian households, I always have a jar of tamarind chutney and green chutney in my fridge. With these things readily available, making 'Papdi Chat' is just a matter of chopping some veggies and assembling them. It can be made in under 10 minutes.


2 medium potatoes, boiled.
1 large onion.
1 large tomatoes.
1/2 cup yoghurt beaten with 1/4 cup water, salt and sugar to taste.
2 tbsp chat masala
¼ cup nylon sev.
¼ cup tamarind chutney. (follow the link for the recipe)
¼ cup green chutney. (follow the link for the recipe)
Juice of 1 lemon.

Assembling the papdi chat:

1.Peel the potatoes and dice them into small pieces. Keep them in a bowl and drizzle lemon juice over it.

2. Dice tomatoes and onions into small pieces.  

3. Arrange the papdi on a large plate. Place a teaspoon of potato over each papdi. Then add a teaspoon of diced tomatoes and onion.

8. Drizzle 2 teaspoon of yoghurt on each papdi. Sprinkle a pinch of chat masala and add teaspoon tamarind chutney and half a teaspoon of coriander chutney. Sprinkle sev over it and chopped coriander over it.

Devour one papdi at a time.. Ah Bliss!
If you think that is too much of work, then crush the papdis and place them on a plate and heap all the ingredients over it one by one! It won't look that beautiful, but I tell you it is as delicious as the other one! My DH likes it this way while I prefer to have it the other way.
