Pita chaat.. similar to paapdi chat

Yesterday I was making dinner when my hubby came back from office.  He was very tired and also very hungry. Served chai and asked if he would like some biscuits as there was nothing else to snack on. He said when will you make me some paapdi chaat .... long time since you made me any.. how about tomorrow. I was thinking and working on dinner as well when my eyes fell on the pita bunch. Thought why should I not try with that rather than making paapdis. I had almost everything in hand other than the paapdis ... so I was set to try this one. It took me around 25 mins to make the whole thing and believe they turned out delicious. My hubby was surprised and was on appreciation chants the whole evening :)

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Serve warm. Can add any extra spices that will suit your taste buds

This is what u'll need....

Boiled Chole/chick peas 1/4 cup
Chopped onion 4 tbspn
Chopped tomato 4 tbspn
Garam masala
Chilli powder
Veggie pattie 2 /Boiled potato 1 big
Pita 2
Olive oil 2 tbspn
Sweet chutney 1/4 cup
Coriander chutney 1/4 cup

Curd 1/4 cup
Bhujia/sev 4 tbspn
Chopped coriander for garnish
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Preheat the oven at 350 degrees
  • Cut the pita into medium thin strips and place them on a baking sheet
  • Sprinkle little garam masala and salt on top of the slices. Drizzle little olive oil and bake for 8-10 mins. Flip the pieces and bake for another 8-10 mins till they turn golden brown and crispy
  • Pick a serving plate and base it with half the chick peas, chopped onions and tomatoes. Sprinkle little salt and garam masala
  •  Break a veggie pattie into small pieces and top it on the plate. I usually have veggie patties stored in the freezer.. always make a bunch of them and pop them in. They come in handy for a quick snack
  • Heat this plate in the microwave for 30 secs to warm up all the ingredients
  • Meanwhile mix curd with little salt, garam masala and chilli powder
  • Remove the plate from microwave and add spoon some curd, sweet chutney, coriander chutney followed by little sev. Sweet chutney recipe come up soon
  • Finish off with coriander leaves and serve warm. Sweet chutney and curd amounts may vary by person. Adjust to taste
  • You can use green chutney adds a zest .. i dint have it in stock so dint bother to make any
