Papdi Chaat

Summer meals are light meals - breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or even snacks and lite bites for kids :) My daughter's khwaaish was 'something different and chatpata' last Sunday evening and thankfully I had anticipated this beforehand and was prepared with the ingredients. Thanks to her, all of us had delicious Papdi Chaat.

I really don't have to give out the recipe for this, but for all the effort I took and the pics that I was allowed to take, I thought why not share this at all :) I have made this child friendly with less spice etc. But do indulge yourself if you are serving this at a party / get together as a yummy starter ... The quantities are also approx, and can be adjusted to suit your palate.

Preparation time: 30 mins. Cooking time : nil ;
Serves : As many as one wants to eat (just extrapolate the ingredients :-) )


  • Papdi / Papri - 20 nos (Store bought or home made)
  • Sev / Omapudi - 1 cup
  • Boiled & mashed Potatoes - 2 cups
  • Chopped Onions - 1/2 cup
  • Chopped Tomatoes - 1/2 cup
  • Grated carrots + raw mango - 1/2 cup (opt)
  • Green Chutney - 1/4 cup
  • Tamarind chutney - 1/4 tsp
  • Chaat Masala - 3 tsp
  • Cilantro / Fresh Coriander - 1/2 cup
  • .....and....a slurpy palate :)

1) Assemble about 6 papdis per person on a plate.
2) Smear some chutney and load the rest of the veggies - potato, carrots, onions, grated carrots, grated raw mango etc in any order that you like - in small quantities one on top of the other.
3) Sprinkle chaat masala, coriander and also chutney again if you desire.
4) Now top with sev and serve immediately.

1) I prepared all the veggies and chutneys and stored them in separate airtight containers beforehand. Saves time.
2) Add left over veggies and / or chutneys to murmura (kadalepuri) for a quick bhel puri @ home !
3) You may add the following ingredients to make it even spicier - red chilli powder / green chilli paste / pepper powder etc.,
4) Boiled chickpeas / kabuli chana may also be added with or in place of potato.


  1. Tempting and yummy snack!
