Khakra Chaat


This is one of tarla dalal's recipe which i found it very interesting and unique as i had never used khakra to do a chaat but after doing this, i found it simple yet delicious and a perfect snack whenever there are unexpected guests as it can be done within few minutes
Ingredients
5-6 Plain khakras broken into pieces
For the tomato Mix
2 tomato blanched, peeled & pureed
1 tomato finely chopped
4 fresh green chillies chopped
1/4 cup boiled American sweet corn
1/4 cup fresh boiled green peas
1 onion finely chopped
1 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp finely grated garlic
3 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

a pinch of sugar
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
For garnishing
1/4 cup chopped onion
few finely chopped coriander leaves
few American sweet corn
1 tsp chaat masala powder

Method
  • Heat oil in a pan, fry garlic, green chillies for 1-2 minutes and then add onion and fry till translucent
  • Add pureed tomato and fry till oil leaves the sides of the pan 
  • Add chilli powder and fry for 1 minute and then add corn,peas,tomato,coriander leaves and 2-3 tbsp water, salt, sugar and fry for 1 minute
  • Switch off the gas and allow it to cool and then keep aside
  • In a serving plate, arrange the khakra pieces on it evenly, spread the tomato chutney on it evenly and garnish it with coriander leaves, chopped onion, corn and lastly sprinkle chaat masala powder over it and then serve it immediately
