Here Are 6 Interesting And Impressive Chaat Recipes For The Weekend:
1. Katori Chaat
What makes this chaat stand out is its presentation. Common chaat ingredients are mixed together and served in crisp 'katoris.' Doesn't that sound delightful? The katori itself is made using a maida batter. No complex techniques are required; just a simple cooking hack. To find out, watch the recipe video here.
2. Makki Dhokla Chaat
This treat allows you to relish spongy dhoklas as part of a unique chaat. And it's not just any dhokla used here, but Makki Dhokla. This is a beloved delicacy in Rajasthan. In this chaat, the dhokla is mixed with green chutney, garlic chutney, curds and bhujiya - creating a wonderful medley of flavours and textures. Watch the recipe video here.

3. Bhakarwadi Chaat
Papdi chaat is a classic way to use a crispy ingredient (papdi) as the base for a chaat. Why not take inspiration from that and make bhakarwadi chaat too? For the uninitiated, bhakarwadi are bite-sized fried snacks with a spiral shape. They are especially famous in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Both the snack itself (recipe here) and the chaat (recipe here) are easy to make. And once you try, you are sure to be left wanting more.
4. Khakra Chaat
Another crisp ingredient you can use for your chaat is khakra. Since it is roasted and not fried, khakra is actually relatively healthier. In general, this chaat is also packed with other nutritious ingredients that can be good for you. It proves that dieters can also enjoy street-style food at home, but with a twist! Here's the full recipe for this chaat.
5. Bread Dahi Chaat
This is the perfect choice when you don't have much time on your hands. You can prepare a delectable bread dahi chaat in just 15-20 minutes. It doesn't require specific ingredients like paan or khakra either - just common ones you are sure to find in your kitchen. Click here for the complete recipe.
6. Paan Chaat
Now this chaat ingredient is definitely unconventional. Betel leaf (the one used for making paan) can actually be used for making a fusion chaat. Believe us, this dish is quite tasty and memorable. Try it at least once. Read the recipe here.
