Who doesn't love chaat? Most people whom I know are big fans of chaat items and keep visiting their favorite outlets for devouring this Indian street food. The only drawback with eating chaat outside is the low level of hygiene which is not good for our health. But do you know that it is very easy to make all the chaat items at home without compromising on taste and hygiene. Today I made a simple chaat, Dahi puri which is basically puri or the gol gappa topped with various chutneys, masalas and dahi or yogurt. The taste was outstanding and with all the ingredients prepared beforehand, it was assemblds in just a few minutes. Here is the recipe.
