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.
You will need:
1. 2 Medium Sized Ripe Tomatoes – Wash and chop into thick slices
2. Arrange the Tomato slices on a serving platter or plate (On the streets, they serve these on dried leaf or a square piece of newspaper 🙂 )
3. Drizzle with Green Chutney and Sweet/Sour Tamarind Chutney
4. Top with chopped onions and grated carrots
5. Top with a handful of Puffed rice/Mamra/Muri and/or any available Mixture (I happened to have some store bought Haldirams Poha Mixture)
6. Top with Fine Sev and Chopped Cilantro. Serve with tea and enjoy 🙂
Happy Cooking 🙂
