Chaat, Party ideas

Dahi Batata Puri | Easy Chaat Dishes | Party Ideas

Summer. Curd. Chaat – Do you need any more excuse ?? Probably not.

If you have the ingredients ready beforehand (which are mostly pantry staples), then assembling this lip smacking chaat is a matter of minutes. And they disappear in a jiffy too !!

For chaat lovers CANNOT NOT love Dahi Batata Puri (Dahi = curd, Batata = potato, Puri = puffed crispy ball). We are doing a Potato series this week, and I couldn’t help but blog about this family favourite.


Diabetic ?? Not to worry, you can easily substitute Potato with Sweet potato or even add extra Boiled sprouts / Boiled chickpeas.

Vegan ? Not to worry, you can sub the yoghurt with cashew / soy or any other vegan yoghurt of your choice.

No potato ? You can still have the Dahi Puri stuffed with any boiled sprouts with a dash of yoghurt and the lip smacking chutneys.

What’s your excuse to make this now ? Head to the kitchen to make a plate now !
