Dahi Papdi Chaat | Dahi Papri Chaat

dahipapdichaatfeature

Papdi Chaat or Papri Chaat is one of my favorite chaat that can be assembled quickly once you have papdi ready. But the highlight is, there is lot of substitutes available for this papdis also.  Papri or Papdi means wafers or crackers. Traditionally this chaat is prepared with the fried flour wafers, topped with boiled potatoes, onions, tomatoes, sev and of course with sweet and green chutney. You can add yogurts and make it Dahi Papdi Chaat and that’s what I am presenting today.

For Pani Puri, we use black chick peas whereas for papdi chaat we go with garbanzo beans. As I mentioned above, some of the substitutes that I have tried so far are,

  • Instead of papdis, I have tried tortilla chips. Both corn flavored ones and also veggie flavored ones.
  • Err, Ritz crackers also. But never topped it up with yogurt though. (Need to give it a try)

I always have canned garbanzo beans in my pantry to quickly whip up chole or some side for roti. That comes in handy for this chaat. So my go to chaat or starter is always this papdi chaat and we can whip up zillion varieties with these simple ingredients that we have in hand.

For this marathon, I wanted to try everything from scratch. But with hectic schedule, I had to go semi-homemade for few recipes. So for Pani Puri, I went with store bought ones, but luckily I was able to try homemade papdi’s and I posted the recipe yesterday. This recipe and the one coming tomorrow call for this homemade papdis.

 Here comes the papdi and also the assembling video,

Ingredients:

  • Papdis –  10
  • Potato – 1
  • Chopped Tomato – 1
  • Chopped Onion – 1/4 cup
  • Boiled Channa Dal – 1/4 cup
  • Sweet Chutney – 2 tsps for each plate
  • Mint Chutney – 2 tsps for each plate
  • Yogurt – 1/2 cup
  • Sev – handful
  • Chaat masala – 1/2 tsp
  • Amchur Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Dash of Paprika for each plate
  • Chopped Cilantro – 3 to 4 tbsps.

Prep – Work:

Preparing channa dal:

  • You can use stored bough garbanzo beans. In that case, wash them well and take about ¼ cup.
  • If you want to prepare it traditionally, you can soak the dried garbanzo beans overnight and pressure cook them for up to 3 whistles and once it is cooled down, set aside ¼ cup of dal. The remaining can be used for chole preparation. J

Preparing Yogurt Mix:

  • Beat the yogurt and add the chaat masala and amchur powder and mix it well.

Misc.:

  • Boil the potato in you preferred way and coarsely mash them.
  • Chop the onions, tomatoes and cilantro.

  • Now add the boiled potatoes, chopped tomatoes, onions and cilantro.
  • The drizzle the spiced yogurt mix and then some more sev, onion and cilantro.
  • Add a dash of paprika towards the end. Here is the assembling video. 

That’s it. Yummy dahi papdi chaat is ready. :-)

Notes:

  • Instead of papdi, you can use tortilla chips or even ritz crackers.
  • Adjust the spices, salt and chaat masalas as per your preference.
  • Sprouted moog dal can be used as a topping too.
