Dahi Batata Puri Chaat


Dahi Batata Puri

Chatpata chaats are popular on the streets of India, and famous on almost every street in Mumbai.  Frequented by those wanting a quick snack or as a substitute for lunch or dinner these lip-smacking street foods are adored by young and old. Dahi batata puri also called dahi aloo puri or dahi puri are crispy puris stuffed with potato and covered with yogurt chutney and coriander leaves.  Pomegranate seeds not only enhances the presentation but adds a delicious juicy crunch to each morsel. Those who wish to avoid potato can substitute it with sprouted moong or soaked boondi.  The aloo puris are a burst of flavours with the various chutneys, yogurt, coriander, sev etc.  I personally do not like combining yogurt and raw onion and so have skipped raw onion in this Chaat, do feel free to use onion if you prefer.
