Spicy Samosa Chaat

Ramadan recipes| Spicy samosa chaat| Boondi raita| Snacks recipes

This is one of my favorite Ramadan recipes. It consists of 5 main things, which are not at all time taking and hence may not affect your prayers. It has fried samosas, spiced yogurt, boiled potatoes & chickpeas, chopped tomatoes & onions & Phulkia (fried dumplings)!! You can boil chickpeas even a month before. Potatoes can also be boiled 2-3 days ahead. Phulkia can also be fried in an airtight jar even a month before. And soaked in warm water for few minutes before use. 

Now lets move on to its recipe:

It basically has 7 main ingredients. We will proceed one by one:

Serves - 4 - 5 

1. Ingredients for Boondi/ Phulkia/ dumplings:

Black pepper                                       1/4 tsp.
Salt                                                      1/2 tsp.
Cumin seeds                                        1/2 tsp
Red chili powder                                1/4 tsp.
Gram flour (Baysan)                           1 cup
Water                                                   1/2 cup
Baking powder                                    1/4 tsp.
Oil                                                        For frying 


Mix all of the above ingredients and add water gradually to make a semi thick paste. Maker sure it should not be too thin or too thick. Next, heat oil on medium heat and once hot, hold perforated spoon (a big round spoon with multiple smalll holes in it) a little above the pan & pour a small scoop of batter on it. Spread the batter on spoon so that small droplets of it fall into the oil and get fried into boondi :) Repeat the process with rest of the batter. Let them turn into golden brown. Stir them around gradually and take them out when they turn golden brown. Pour them directly into cold water and drain.

2. Boiled Chickpeas - 1 cup

3. Boiled Potatoes- 3 medium, chopped

4. Onions - 1 medium, chopped

5. Tomatoes - 1 medium, chopped

6. Ingredients for yogurt:

Yogurt                                                1/2 kg whipped
Sugar                                                  2 tbsp
Salt                                                     1/4 tsp
Red chili powder                                1/2 tsp.
Chaat Masala                                      1/2 tsp.
Green Chili                                         1 chopped finely
Coriander Leaves                                A bunch, Chopped

Take whipped spiced yogurt, add boiled chickpeas, chopped boiled potatoes, chopped onions, tomatoes & boondi/ gram flour dumplings in it, and give a gentle stir. Put in referigerator for few hours as it is best served chilled. Pour in a plate.. put fried samosas on top of the chaat. You can add some paapri on it too. Pour Tamarind sauce (Imli ki chutney on it), garnish with chopped mint/coriander leaves and serve with Chaat masala !!! =)
