Papdi Chaat for Daddy-Jiiiii

Daddy-ji, Wish You A Very Very Happy Birthday from all your near and dear ones from Banglore, Bhilai, Minneapolis and Tokyo. Also wishing you a long, prosperous and healthy life. I know mummy has made lot of your favorite dishes today, but I have also prepared some thing special for you and its "Papadi Chaat". We all know that you avoid eating out side junk food, but enjoy when prepared at home and I still remember how you used to tell me different stories to keep me away from eating outside. This plate is for you daddy-ji, totally hygienic and very tasty. Hope you like it.

For Papdi Chaat you need:
  • Semolina Puries
  • Cilantro chatni
  • Tamarind chatni
  • Bitten thick curd
  • Boiled potatoes 3 chopped
  • Boiled Peas
  • 1 chopped onion
  • Hand full chopped cilantro
  • 2 green chili chopped
  • 1 tsp chart masala
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp pepper powder
  • 1/2 dried ginger powder
  • 1 tsp black salt or common salt
For Semolina Puries:
  • 1 cup semolina or suji or rava
  • 1 tbsp maida or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Warm water
  • Oil for frying

Mix all the ingredients and make a tight dough with warm water and leave for 20 min. Then make small golf ball size puries and deep fry in oil till golden brown. Press the puries while deep frying.

For Cilantro chatni:
  • 1 bunch of fresh and clean cilantro
  • 2 green chili
  • 2 garlic flakes
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 tsp mustard oil
  • Salt to taste
Put all the things in blender and make a nice and smooth paste and you are ready with coriander chatni.

For Tamarind chatni:
  • 50 gm tamarind
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 100 gm sugar

Soak tamarind in water for 2-3 hrs, extract the pulp & filter, mix all the ingredients and boil it till it becomes half. Add sugar as per taste.

For Padpdi Chaat:

Take 5 -6 puries in a plate and make hole from one side for filling the ingredients. Now fill it with boiled potatos and peas, ddd chopped onions and chili. Now fill it with the chatnies and curd. Then sprinkle all the masalas and salt. Garnish with cilantro and bhujiya sev. Yuuummmmyyy now you are ready with very tasty chaat. In some part of central India it is also called as SPDP (Sev Puri Sahi Puri).
