Dahi Batata Puri

Chaat...everyone loves chaats...from kids to teens,adults to old ones...no one says no to a delectable plate of chaat!!

I love chaats a loooooot...I can have plates after plates :P
In Goa, we have so many beaches....and since my childhood I love visiting beaches, to calm one from soaring heat during summer, to sit on the sand and feel the cool breeze, play in water, make sand castles and finally when heading back home eat Chaat!!

In Goa, near beaches we have sooooo many chaat stalls and God know what they put in those plates but they are heaven!! :) :)
You cant eat just one plate and go home!! NOO...u need to have a plate of Shev Puri, Ragada Pattis,Dahi Batata Puri,Pani Puri....finally Ice Gola :D
Well, you can make out from my description how much of an appetite I have for chaats :P

In this post I am sharing how I make Chaat at home. Well, I don't prepare puris at home because that takes a lot of time and whenever I think of chaat I need it by evening...so there's hardly any time to make puri,different chutneys...so my easy way is getting store made Puris.

If you want  to know how to make Puris...I can share recipe for that too.
This post of Dahi Batata Puri is with store bought puri.

Enjoy!!
