Chaat, Sizzling Tastebuds

Whole Moong Chaat | Gluten Free | Chaat Recipes

How can we possibly have a protein rich Blogging marathon without a chaat ? As you would know by now, am quite fond of street food and although laborious I prefer to make them at home not just for hygiene (which is the most important reason) but also to feed the kids a sumptuous snack once they are back from snack. After two idli recipes in a row, make room for some chaat :p


If you are a chaat lover like me, check the following list to make these yummy snacks at home. 

and many many more…

Let’s now get to today’s quick to make recipe which takes more time to type this recipe and edit the pictures than to make it. If you have a batch of homemade moong sprouts this is a snack that comes together in under 10 mins. I made this for lunch last weekend and it was quite filling. 


Onions are optional so add if you like them

You can also add boiled potatoes, crumbled sweet peas, sautéed cabbage to make this more nutritious.

The yoghurt in this recipe is totally optional but rounds off the flavours,so totally recommend it. Vegans can substitute curd with cashew curd or peanut curd for a similar taste. 


Gluten free , almost oil-free, fuss free and wholesome. That’s my kind of snack. What’s your favourite ?
