If you are familiar with Indian cuisine, you probably are not surprised by India’s culinary diversity. There is so much more to Indian cuisine than the usual that you see in restaurants from Butter chicken, Saag Paneer (spinach/cheese to Naan (Indian bread). Today, I am about to spice up your palette with this Katori (bowl) Chaat. Chaat or chat is a category of Indian street foods that have the perfect combination of spicy, salty, tangy, sweet, crunchy and oh did I mention exotic. There are endless varieties of foods that are labeled as chaat and they all look and taste just a little different. In fact, the same dish can taste completely different based on where your roots are from India. I did it the easy way and used tortillas to make the Katori (bowl).
Delight your guests with this culinary adventure from the streets of India and it will be a crowd favorite in no time. I make my Tamarind chutney and Mint/Coriander chutney at home but you can buy them online or at an Indian store close to you. Will be posting the recipes soon if you want to go all the way and make them at home and also the links to purchase online(at the bottom of the blog).
