Chaat Mela #4 - Dahi Papdi Chaat

Dahi papdi chaat1

Me and my family have been thoroughly enjoying the chaat series so far. Its sheer bliss to indulge on your favorite dishes everyday, isn't it?? ;) It adds to the pleasure when I enjoy making them all by myself :)

Gangotri is one of the best eatery all Chennaites would have enjoyed having chaat from. I am no exception and have visited quite often during college days :) Every time I visit Gangotri, I would order Dahi papdi chaat since I love chaats with curd a lot :) So this chaat has a special place in my favorites list always.

I had bookmarked this recipe from Ria's Collection long time back and instantly took out the recipe and made it this afternoon :)

The recipe was foolproof. No wonder when it is from her! she is one of the best blogger's I have come across :)

I followed her papdi recipe as it is but went by my own choice when assembling the chaat.

Dahi papdi chaat6

Ingredients:

All purpose flour(Maida) - 1 1/2 cups
Salt- for taste
Ajwain(Omam / Carom seeds) - 1 tsp
Oil - 2 tblsp
Water - 1/2 cup or less

Dahi papdi chaat8

Method:

Take maida, salt and ajwain in a bowl and mix well. Add the oil to it and rub with your hands to make crumbs.

Now add water little by little and make a hard dough. The consistency should be harder than chapathi dough.

Keep this covered for twenty minutes.

Roll them into a large circle of 2mm thickness. Cut out circles using cookie cutter or a bottle cap.

Pierce lots of holes on the papdi with fork tines.

Put the cut circles on a paper and let it aside for ten mins. This step helps in getting flat(un puffed) and crispy papdi.

Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the papdi until light brown on both the sides.

Drain the excess oil on tissue and store in air tight containers.

I was born and brought up in chaat.. you would ask, "kyun pappa ka chaat ka business tha kya?" hmm... aah! no, actually these are the common things in north and you could have them often on a daily basis. :)

Your preparation is good... searching anyone from north ;) kidding...

I love dahi with anything... rice, paratha... hmm... anything! I bet this chaat would have been delicious... want a video testimonial? send chaat for me ;)
