Papdi Chat

Papdi chat i was forced to do.It so happened one day i wanted to make muruku.I took the flour in a bowl,added ajwain,salt and butter.Poured warm water and started kneading the dough.Then to my horror i realised the flour is not rice flour but maida/plain flour.I never ate muruku made with maida.Then made the dough and kept it to rest for while and gave my brain some time to think what to do with the maida.
Googled for the idea and saw shailu's website where in she made papdi chat.So lifted the idea from there and made this chat.Luckly had the sev at home and the outcome was excellent.


Maida 1 cup
Ajwain 1 tbsp
Butter 2 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil for deep frying

For chat

Boiled potato
Finely chopped onions
Finely chopped coriander leaves
Tamarind chutney
Green chutney-- Check here for the recipe.


For tamarind chutney

Jaggery 1 tbsp crushed
Tamarind size of small half lemon
Cumin seeds (roaster) 1tsp
Red chilly powder 1tsp
Salt as per taste

Grind cumin into fine powder,mix tamarind pulp,jaggery,red chilly powder and salt.Add little water and boil for 4-5 minutes.Let it cool and can be stored for long.

Make small puris with the dough.Poke the puris with a fork and deep fry until cripsy.Once cool store in a air tight container until use.

Arrange papdis in a plate.Put some boiled potato on that.Then add little green chutney and tamarind chutney.Then keep little of chopped onions and coriander leaves.

Lastly add curd and sev and serve immediately.
