Papri Chaat! The Crispy, Tasty and Tangy North Indian Snack


In this season I can’t think of anything else than food, something little spicy and tangy. I’m a foodie by nature and when it rains outside I feel like having something that just compliments my mood and taste. In rainy season most of us like to have chaats, that’s the best thing to satisfy the taste buds. That is very common in all Indians I guess. The moment it rains either we rush out to have something or ask the ladies of the house to prepare something for us.

If you are looking for something to prepare on your own which doesn’t require much expertise and time and which still satisfies your watering mouth then Chaat Papri is the best thing. You need to have some of the ready made things, mix them, garnish and done.  Chaat papri is basically a snack that includes papri, coriander chutney, tamarind chutney, curd, boiled potatoes, some masala etc.

Here I have listed detailed recipe and procedure. And if you can’t make these things at home, get all the required things from store and serve as directed.  So let’s see what we need
