A - Z Indian Street Foods ~ T for Tikki Puri

Today's street food is a popular one in Bangalore and is on the similar lines as the nippat masala I posted earlier in this series. In fact, there are a few similar chaats locally where only the base changes and one ends up with a new kind of chaat and a new name. 

The flat puris in this recipe can be replaced with chaklis, chips, tomato slices and so on to end up with different versions. Today's chaat is a simple one to be honest but quite a tasty one if you ask me. I had used store bought sweet chutney and flat puris here and so, the chaat didn't take much time to assemble.
 Ingredients: (Yield 2 servings)
About 15 - 20 papdis / flat puris *
1 big onion, finely minced
1 carrot, peeled and grated
2 tbsp. chopped cilantro
1 tsp. chaat masala 
1 tsp. Salt to taste 
1 tsp. red chili powder (optional)
1/2 cup green chutney
1/2 cup sweet tamarind chutney
1/2 cup congress kadalekaayi / masala peanuts
1/2 cup sev
1/2 cup puffed rice
* Puffed puris can be used as well.

Assembling tikki puri:
* Combine minced onion, chopped cilantro and grated carrot in a mixing bowl.
* Arrange 7 to 10 puris on a serving plate. 

* Place a spoonful of vegetable mixture on each puri. Sprinkle a pinch or two of chat masala, salt and chili powder if using over each of them.

* Drizzle 1/2 spoon each of green chutney and tamarind - date chutney over each puri. 

* Then top each puri with sev (crisp, deep fried chickpea flour vermicelli) generously.

* Next sprinkle the spicy peanuts as much as needed.

* Finally top it off with a handful or two of puffed rice and serve immediately.
