Mini bhakarwadi chaat made with mini sweet & spicy bhakarwadis that will knock the socks out of your guests. A really delicious appetizer to serve for your next gathering!
Diwali is just round the corner and if you are looking for a super easy dish that will make you look like a SUPER HOSTESS , try this amazing take on everybody’s beloved sweet & spicy crunchy snack! I was able to find these MINI BHAKARWADIS at our Indian store as well as at our Asian store.
First RESIST AND NOT FINISH THEM ALL EVEN BEFORE YOU START ON YOUR CHAAT!
The basic things you need to make a good chat are ->>
GREEN CILANTRO CHUTNEY
SWEET DATE TAMARIND CHUTNEY
YOGURT THINNED OUT WITH MASALAS
SEV ( FRIED THIN CHICKPEA FLOUR NOODLES)
CILANTRO FRESH (OPTIONAL)
ROASTED CUMIN SEEDS ROUGHLY CRUSHED
SALT, BLACK PEPPER
So once you get all these MUST HAVE CHAAT INGREDIENTS, it literally takes 10 minutes to throw a mean bowl of chaat together! I am for sure serving it for my Diwali gathering and also including at our Thanksgiving table this year!
So YOU ASK WHAT EXACTLY IS THIS CHAAT? Well it’s super simple! In a bowl add finely chopped onions, tomatoes, potatoes, cilantro along with chaat masala, salt, black pepper, roasted jeera and sev. Give it a good mix. Then to it add handful of mini bhakarwadis. Toss again. Meanwhile have all other ingredients like chutneys and yogurt ready. Place this mix onto a plate, drizzle both spicy & sweet chutney along with masala yogurt. Garnish with more sev, chopped serranos, onions, chaat masala and SERVE IMMEDIATELY!
CAN I MAKE THIS CHAAT AHEAD OF TIME? So you can get everything ready as in all chopping done, all chutneys and yogurt ready BUT ASSEMBLE IT WHEN & ONLY WHEN READY TO EAT or they will get soggy.
I hope you make it and share it with your loved ones!
