Tikki Chole Chaat | Spicy Chaat recipes

Chaat is welcome in any form at my place. I had a batch of cooked
and frozen chickpeas, and when my elder girl asked me to make something
chatpata (spicy) on a rather chilly Sunday afternoon, I suggested that I make
this. She was more than eager to help me assemble the chaat, and thanks to
inspiration from Vaishali who had posted a similar post that morning, we
enjoyed making it and wolfing them down. Although slightly tedious, this is
very similar to the Ragda patties or the Dry Tikki Chaat.  The base instead of dried
peas gravy is similar to the Chole (chickpeas gravy) served with Puri or
Bhature.  Topped with sev , chutneys and a dash of yoghurt, this makes for
a lipsmacking and colourful chaat for any party or get together. 

Sending this to Day 3 of Kids Colourful dishes. Hope u enjoyed the
series with Hung Curd Canapes, Badam Palak Shorba and today’s post with Tikki Chole Chaat.  

Linking it to Varada’s Kids Delight – Colourful Dishes event, who’s hosting it this month
