Dahi Puri is a favourite Cooler Chat among adults and children who cannot handle heat from fiery hot Pani Puri’s.
Having spent my entire childhood in Mumbai, some flavours always linger in your palate and one always looks for them even when they grow up.
Chat is one such affair, I have had since childhood. It is still my first love ! I hate to try chat in restaurants in London , as I do not find the authenticity in flavor and presentation.
So its always home !!
Oh what can I say about this Cooler Street Food. It’s got all the goodness of Yogurt and tidbits from here and there. Absolutely refreshing and healthy too. The filler that goes inside the fried puri’s is entirely your choice. It can vary from sprouts to mildly spiced potato or a mixture of chickpeas and potato. What not!!
Chat is my comfort zone and I thoroughly enjoy its preparation . Some elements of the chat got to be the same way every time I make them and there can be no alterations to it like the green chutney, dates chutney and the final elements. Only element that is allowed some sort of leeway is the filling.
Our family friends absolutely love Chat , that I bring together in a plate and they look forward, when I would plan for a Chat party. I am not kidding at all. We had unlimited Pani Puri for starters for my daughter’s second birthday party and it was absolutely mind blowing. Its wasnt a hooligan task to make the chat ingredients before the party..Just had to make the Chat Pani concotion in a concentrated form and add enough cold water before the action time. Another Mumbaikar like me, a new friend in to our gang helped me serve pani puri’s non stop like the telawala’s. My !! What an evening it was ! Followed by Pani Puri , my menu was completed with Mumbai’s Pav Bhaji. Chat’s can make me go non stop Chit Chat with the goodness, completeness and wholesomeness in one platter.
