I think every one is familiar with samosa, one of the most loved and enjoyed snack of every Indian. Chaat is a street food very popular in India, there are different types of chaat. Basically chaat is a plate of savoury snack which has a base of some fried dough top with chutney and some other ingredients and masala. The common ingredients in the chaat is yogurt, tamarind chutney, green chutney, chaat masala, red chilli powder, kala namak, red chilli powder and some greens to garnish the plate. Chaat is something you can’t say no to, the name itself makes you crave for it.

Last week when we were dinning out in one of the indian restaurant, hubby ordered samosa chaat as an appetizer and it was not as good as it should be. Hence without any second thought I made this and the verdict was amazingly delicious. You can decide just looking at the pics how amazing it was!
