Dahi Papdi Chaat / North Indian Street Food

Papdi chaat is a popular traditional North Indian street food. A perfect blend of sweet, sour ,tangy , and spicy flavors with a creamy crunchy texture ! It is traditionally prepared using crisp fried dough wafers known as papri , along with boiled chick peas, boiled potatoes , yogurt and tamarind chutney and topped with chaat masala and sev.

To make it a an healthy affair , i have used Whole Wheat baked Matris in place of deep fried maida papdi. Have paired Moong sprouts with boiled Potatoes to top the matris which makes them filling. The yogurt gives a nice creamy texture to the dish. And Coriander, Mint green chutney and Dates and tamarind chutney gives it the required spicy , sweet and tangy kick. Overall an irresistible Chaat dish.
