Try chaat, India’s most popular street food

Bhalla Papdi Chaat

If your stomach is strong enough, I suggest trying out India’s most famous street dish called the “chaat”. This particular dish is so popular that most of us Indians will walk out of the house just to have a plate of chaat from the local street vendor. Most Indian localities will have one of these street food carts. As you can see below, the chaat is made of chickpeas with chillies and other hot spices. You think of a spice and it’s in it. The brown sauce running down the yoghurt is tamarind sauce, the classic ingredient of chaat that gives it that tangy taste. It will also have dried ginger and pepper, coriander leaves, onions, dried noodles, and aloo tikkis or samosas. If you love Indian food, you’ll love the chaat.
