Dahi Papdi Chaat | Papdi Chaat | Street Food

Dahi Papdi Chat, one of the popular chaat made from papdi and yogurt as main ingredients.For the last week  of Mega BM, i have chosen the theme "Street  foods", out of all the theme, this is my favorite.When it comes to chaat items, i'm very picky and this papdi chaat is one of my favorite. When i was working in chennai, there is a sweet stall(Ganga Sweets) near by to our office, where i used to go with my colleagues for evening snack some time, in one of those visit, i got introduced to this dahi chaat. I really liked this chaat and felt that the crunchy papdi & sev with creamy curd makes it so delicious and wanting to eat more & more !!!

Ok, enough with the  discovery of my dahi chaat liking. Now coming to the recipe, it's really very simple to make this yummy chaat when you have all ingredients in hands. Just add more or less of all ingredients as per your liking and your chaat plate is ready in mins. Here in the recipe i have used home made papdi and sev. But you can use the store brought ones also, they too taste equally good.

Take the curd in a bowl, add salt & sugar & whisk it well until it becomes creamy. Keep all the other ingredients ready to assemble the chaat. Take the needed papdi on the plate. Place few potatoes & onions on each papdi.Add the needed green & sweet chutney on each papdi. Then add the generous amount of curd & top it with plain sev.If needed, again on the top drizzle some green chutney & sweet chutney and garnish with chopped coriander leaves. For extra spice, i have sprinkled a pinch of chili powder & garam masala, but that's purely optional.Dahi Papdi Chaat is ready to serve.
  • For most of the ingredients, i haven't mentioned the quantity, because it's purely up to your preference. Add more or less as per your liking.
  • Just before serving, assemble the chaat, otherwise the papdi & sev would be soggy.
  • In addition to potatoes, if you have cooked chickpeas, you can add that also.
