Indian Street Food

What Are Some Of The Indian Chaat Dishes One Would Like To have?

My favourite Indian restaurant features Mumbai street food. I particularly like their samosa chaat.

There’s a new place in our local town that does Indian vegetarian and vegan street food. I’ve enjoyed the occasional chaat (usually chicken/murg) that pops up on Indian restaurant menus, but their chaat was probably one of the best renditions I remember having. Really nice bright mix of the sweet and tangy sauce. They also had a fantastic pani puri.


mmmm vada pav, the South Asian butty.

For me it is not so much the name of the chaat, but how it is served. My favorite ever was from a counter in the back of a market where they served both chat papri and bhel puri with a trinity of sauces: cilantro curry, sour tamarind, and yogurt. Now if I get them and one or two are missing, it tastes a bit hollow.

At home: open up a can of chick peas, chop up some raw veggies (make sure to use onion), mix with spices, and voila you’ve got a really nice chaat. As a bonus if you can get some sort of crackers or savory crunchy snack at an Indian market, add that in. If not, cashews/peanut/almond could work well. Or both, two crunchy items instead of just one.
