Mixed Sprouts Chaat

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Chaat, in Hindi literally means 'To Lick'. Traditionally these roadside snacks were served on a leaf and it was so tongue-tickling that one could not resist licking the last morsels from the leaf before discarding it, thereby giving a descriptive name to the cuisine. And truly, Chaat tastes best when had on the roadside.

I & Shankar both love chaat. Our weekends are never complete without our regular visit to the local Chaat Wallah. The ChaatWallah across our street makes a lovely Chaat with Mung Sprouts. Its lip smackingly delicious & healthy as well .. I bought a packet of mixed sprouts from the supermarket & made a different version of out favorite Sprouts Chaat
