Dahi Batata Puri 

Small pooris served with either moong or boiled mashed potatoes,  spicy green chutney, sweet tamarind red chutney and topped with sev and yogurt. 

Chaats.....every Indian is familiar with this word and has tasted chaat in some form or other at some time or other. Popular with kids, teenagers, adults, alike, everyone likes the tangy taste of chaat now and then. 

Chaats do have many high caloric ingredients like sev, puris, farsan, fried potatoes, etc. But they also have a balancing amount of nutritious ingredients like cucumbers, boiled potatoes, tomatos, coriander, etc.

For puris

2 cups very fine semolina / rava
salt to taste
oil to deep fry
puri cutter

Mix semolina, salt and enough water to knead a soft dough. Stand covered with wet cloth for 15-20 minutes. Take a fist sized lump and make a ball. With the help of some dry flour or semolina , roll into big thin rounds. Cut small puris from it with the cutter. Approx. 1 1/2" diameter. You may use a sharp edged lid of a bottle, if the size is alright. Remove the outer edges formed and mix into remaining dough. Heat oil in a pan and deep fry puris till very light brown and crisp. Keep the puris covered with a moist muslin cloth if you would like to fry them later.  Drain and lay them on a kitchen paper towel for awhile for the oil to dry out. Store in an airtight container when cool.

Other Ingredients

Green chutney 
Tamarind chutney 
Crushed cumin powder
Red chilli powder
Chopped coriander
Beaten curds
Fine sev
