Papdi Chat | Dahi Papdi Chat | Dahi Samosa Chat ~ Evening Snacks for Kids

>>  Monday, November 4, 2013

When I was thinking on the different dishes that Konda would love to eat during after school hours, I knew I had to feature chats. She is so very fond of chats and just seeing her gulp them and enjoy and goes oohhh..ahhaa..makes up for the hard work that involves getting a chat in place. I know making chat is supposed to be easy or quick fix. That is, if you have all the chat chutneys on hand. I don't normally store them, and even the basic ingredients needed, will have to be made fresh or bought. 

Can you imagine that I was thinking I was yet to make a papdi chat and all it would have taken me to check my archives, was a search away. And I go and check it after I made it and clicked in different angles. The only saving grace was the fact that my previous recipe is different from this. Yet it doesn't make me feel better. Because I could have made something different. And on top I end up thinking that I should be making something for them to really enjoy rather than always think if this is something new. So on that angle, this recipe really thrilled my daughter. She thoroughly enjoyed this treat and was saying that I should remember to give her chat more frequently.
With Diwali just passed, and our relatives visiting us, I was really bone tired. Though asking for a new dish from my kids, would send me all fired up, this one particular time, didn't actually excite me. I was not willing to hear another word on wanting to eat something new. Being on your feet since morning, planning on three different meals for ten plus is not easy on self. Plus the given condition of clicking step by step for the blog, was too much. Yet I forced myself to do just the same. When you are already going through the task of making it, you can't imagine to go through it second time right.

Anyway all said and done, we had a good time with family over the long weekend and it was worth all the efforts that went in. I thought I might manage some time to write ahead, it hardly happened. 

And finally talking about the Papdi chat that I planned as the second dish for the Evening Snacks/ tiffins for Kids, it suited so well. Naturally Konda was the only one enjoying this treat. My boys were giving me those snooty looks that said how can you even dig out some stuff that akka seems to think is delicious and is so obviously enjoying, while we can hardly stand the look of it! I only hope once they grow out of their no chat phrase soon. It will surely make my life so much easier! Did I mention that all three of them love a very sweet version of pani puri? Well I guess hopefully the rest will follow soon.

Though I had most of the things I needed to make for the Papdi chat, I thought I should get more green chutney. I had to visit the Sweets and savory Shop which also had chats selling. I thought I could buy the green chutney from them. Imagine to my shock, they refused to sell, saying that they hardly get enough to pack it with samosas etc. I was really pissed off, and said I wasn't asking for free. The store manage still refused saying it's against their policy to sell chutneys. They can will give it along with Samosas. So I ended up buying Samosas and making Dahi Samosa chat as well!

Back home, I quickly assembled everything for a quick bite and a click. 

The papdis were made with maida as I did in Raj Kachori. The same chutneys with Aloo, Boondi, Sev and Sweet Dahi.

The other version of Papdi Chat is made with besan. And yes I had made Dahi Samosa chat all from scratch as well.
That's Konda offering her offer!
The samosas were crushed and treated the same!

WOW Valli, your Papdi chaat looks amazing and I am sure tastes equally amazing too.
There was a time when I used to have this everyday as my evening snack. There was a chaat thela/cart outside our house and every day I would indulge. It cost 50 paise per plate:)
