I literally love the two main elements that make this chaat super awesome. Papdis or crackers, and sev or chickpea noodles. Do you remember the baked papdis I made a few weeks ago? Well, I baked another batch of papdis the other day, and started thinking about the best way to enjoy them which in turn led me to this recipe.
As a huge fan of sev, store bought packets makes a regular appearance in my shopping basket. The traditional thin nylon sev makes the perfect topping for this chaat recipe.
Now the enticing list of toppings for the papdis. The basic idea is to use seasonal ingredients, and customize with your favorite toppings. Mashed potatoes, onions, tomatoes, raw mangoes, pomegranate arils and coriander (cilantro) leaves are just a few ideas to make your delicious plate of sev puri irresistible. Don’t forget a generous sprinkling of ground cumin and chaat masala.
Now, the chutneys that make this chaat quite awesome.Sweet date chutney , green chutney and red chutney. While the date chutney imparts a touch of sweetness to the chaat, the red chutney adds a spicy wow factor. The perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavors is what makes this sev puri super awesome. Again, red chutney is totally optional in this recipe.
In fact, there’s so much to love about this sev puri. Oh, my taste buds are humming right now.
