Chaat, Party ideas

Papdi Corn Chaat | Easy Street food recipes

Today’s post is ultra simple but very close to my heart. It was made many months ago exclusively by both my kids. With the elder one taking the lead, and younger helping out it sure warmed our hearts to be served this impromptu by the kids. Needless to say, its more of a memory than a recipe and I sure didn’t want to miss up this opportunity of presenting this in the street food series .


Papdi are small, thin wafer like discs (made mostly of all purpose or wholewheat or a combo) and deep fried / baked and can be used as canapés with various toppings. It also forms a base for Sev Puri one of the most sought after chaats at home. The toppings used here are corn with a tangy tamarind sauce. but any other toppings like cheese , chillies, crushed sev,, sautéed chickpea, bell peppers etc can be used.
