In papdi chaat, besides the papdis (fried flour crispies), a melt in the mouth fusion of boiled chickpeas, potatoes and pakoris (fried black gram fritters) and curd (yogurt) is added.
In this papdi chaat recipe i have used all the ingredients except the urad dal pakoris. The pakoris are made exactly like the bhallas made for dahi bhallas. I did not have time to make the urad dal pakoris. If you decide to make the pakoris, then after deep frying them, let them cool and then soak them in water for some time. Squeeze the water from the pakoris and add it to the papdi chaat before you top it with the curd and the chutneys.
As a substitute for pakoris, you can also use boondi. Soak the boondis in water and then squeeze the water from the boondis. Add these to the papdi chaat.
To make the papdi chaat healthy and nutritious, instead of fried papdis, use baked papdis. You can check this papdi recipe to make fried as well as baked papdis at home. Also some moong sprouts and pomegranate can also be added to the chaat.
Recipe Type Veg.
