Chaat - Dahi Batata Puri

Recipe by  

"Chaat is a broad term that encompasses many different dishes. This recipe is made of yogurt and potatoes and other chaat sauces. You may need to make a trip to an Indian grocery store to stock up on spherical 'puris' (also called as pani-puri puris), 'sev', green chutney, and a sweet and sour chutney. I have tried here to give as many substitutions as possible, if you are unable to go to an Indian grocery store. However, you will definitely lose the authentic taste if you make substitutions. If you can find them, use black salt in place of the rock salt, spherical puris in place of the wheat crackers, and plain sev in place of the crushed potato chips."

Directions

  1. Boil the garbanzo beans in water for about 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork; drain well.
  2. Beat the yogurt together with the following: fresh grated ginger, chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, rock salt or black salt, black pepper and salt.
  3. Season the mashed potato with salt.
  4. Break each puri gently with a fork to create a tiny opening on the top. Arrange the puris in 4 plates, 8 in each plate. Or, if using wheat crackers arrange them on a platter or plates. Place the potatoes on top of each cracker. Place about 1 tablespoon of potato in each puri or on each cracker. Place a few garbanzo beans on top of the potato. Spoon the spiced yogurt on top. Spoon green chutney and sweet and sour chutney on top of it. Garnish with the chopped onion, cilantro, and sev on top. Serving tip: I like to set up a number of small bowls with each of the above condiments, so that each person can add whatever they want to, according to their taste and preferences.

I loved it, particularly because it can be accomplished even by us poor people in the central european wasteland, where you can not simpl go to ´"your local indian grocery store", as many recipe authors advise, and find "sev", "golgappa" or the like in abundance... it has been an absolute smash hit at my last birthday party.

This is a fabulous recipe!! I made it for a group of non-Indian friends and they loved it!! I made the Indian version, and my family loved it too. It was very easy, and very tasty.

Fantastic. Just like the dahi puri I used to eat in India. You can find black salt in the International foods section of most grocery stores. Be sure to have everything ready before you start topping the puri. If you take your time, they'll become soggy. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made this for a group that included a couple families from India. I thought it was a real dud, until my wonderful Indian friends showed me how to mix it all in bowls over broken up crakers (I was trying to balance all the toppings on top of the crackers!!!). They loved it!!!! Thanks for introducing me to Indian cooking!!!!

This is a great start! Making life more simpler, use canned garbanzo beans, drained, there isnt much taste difference. Use good quality yogurt, not the "No Fat" version. I increased the ginger, freshly grated, to 2-3 tsp. I buy the authentic chips from the Indian store and only mix up some of the Chaat with the chips as wanted - dont mix it all at once as it does have to be eaten right away to maintain the soft and crunchy textures. Use fresh Cilantro not dried. I didnt mash the potato but left it in small chunks, adds to the interesting texture differences! Yum Yum !

Made this not really knowing what it was supposed to turn out like or taste like. It ended up being very delicious! I will definitely make it again next time I have a party or guests over. It was very time consuming but in the end was worth it.

A very nice variation on dahi batata puri! I did not care for the spiced yogurt. I usually make this with sweet and spicy yogurt (1 cup yogurt with 2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper). If you have access to tostitos scoops (go for the plain baked or plain multigrain ones), they make fun mini-chaat baskets, known an tokri/katori chaat in India.
