Raj Kachori is considered as the king of chaats! Yes, and I agree 100 %. The crispy poori is filled with boiled veggies and then poured with a combination of sweet, spicy and tangy sauces takes it into another level. I’m sure every Indians love the chaats and this delicious combination!
I already have panipuri, vada pav, Punjabi samosa, Chinese bhel all these recipes on the blog and this is a new addition to my chaat recipes. So you all may now know how much i love such foods. Very simple and easy to make and everyone’s favorite too! My kids and hubby love them and the weather is so apt to make such treats to the family.
This is almost similar to panipuri, here the puris are bigger in size and also adding a sweet yogurt sauce makes a difference. I just loved the combination. I used my dates tamarind chutney here. I will also share a new tamarind chutney recipe below. So if you like chaats and are health conscious or can’t have out because of the cleanliness issue then here is the recipe for you to enjoy it from your home.
Hope you all will love this.
