Tomato Slice Chaat

Standard

I seem to be on a “Street Food” spree 🙂 Who does not love street food? Especially in a country like India with its diversity and variety, street food in each state or ragion is an experience in itself..
Bangalore’s (or maybe even Karnataka’s) street food especially the chaat is different from the typical North Indian Chaat. There is the traditional likes such as Bhel Puri, Sev Puri, Aloo Tikki Chaat, Samosa Chaat etc. and adding to the long list is things like “Churmuri”, “Nippat Masala”, “Boti Masala”, “Masala Puri” (very similar to Chole of the Aloo Tikki chaat sans the chole substituted with green peas) etc.
On the menu today is “Tomato Slice Chaat” – a lesser known variety of Chaat but neverthless extremely delicious. Quick to put together and healthy this is great for a evening tea-time snack.
