PAKORA CHAAT / PAKODI CHAAT



I had some leftover pakoras from the party. Usually I make a sabzi / curry  with them. Today I tried out chaat for a change. Any kind of chaat is always a treat.

Ingredients:
Pakoras ...  8-10
Yogurt ..... 1 cup
Sweet tamarind chutney ... 2-3 tbsps
Mint coriander chutney .... 2-3 tbsps
Chaat masala ............. 1/4 tsp
Bhuna jeera / Roasted cumin powder ... 1/4 tsp
Red chilli powder .......... 1/4 tsp ( add as per your liking)
Salt ...... to taste
Sugar .... 1 tsp
Thin sev .... 2-3 tbsps
Coriander leaves ... to garnish.



Method:
1. Spread the pakoras in a plate. If they are big you can break them into bite size pieces.
2. Whisk the yogurt with a little salt and sugar to balance the taste.
3. Pour it over the pakoras.
4. Spoon the mint chutney and tamarind chutney.
5. Sprinklle the chaat masala, bhuna jeera powder, red chilli powder.
6. Garnish with thin sev and coriander leaves.
