Khakhra Chaat

The last week of BM #48 will see me posting some easy, simple and healthy Chaat Recipes.

For Day 1 of Week 4, here is one such healthy chaat which was enjoyed by all of us at home as an evening snack. I read/heard from somewhere that some healthy chaats can be classified as salads. I think this chaat falls into that category. 

Khakhra chaat can be customized to suit the availability of the ingredients. I would have loved to add some celery, carrots, cucumbers and colored peppers but my kids wanted it this way so went along with their choice.

The Khakhras I used were store bought. But I am sure we can make them at home as well. I deliberately avoided sev and boondi to keep it healthy. But they would definitely add another level of crunchiness to the chaat.

Khakhra Chaat

Recipe Adapted from Tarla Dalal
Ingredients - 

Khakhras 2-3
Potatoes, boiled and cubed 1/2 cup
Corn, steamed 1/2 cup
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomatoes, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Garbanzo Beans/Kabuli Chana, soaked and boiled 1 cup
Paneer, 1 cm cubes 1 cup
Yogurt, beaten 1/2 cup 
Tamarind Date Chutney as needed
Coriander Mint Chutney as needed
Coriander Leaves, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Salt, Black Salt, Red Chilli Powder, Chaat Masala as needed

Khakhra Chaat

Method Of Preparation -

Soak the small paneer cubes (I cubed the paneer into small pieces to keep the sizes of all the ingredients uniform :) ) in boiling hot water for about 3-5 minutes. [I thawed frozen paneer cubes and soaked in boiling water for 5 min].

In a mixing bowl, add the potatoes, corn, onion, tomatoes, chana and paneer. Drizzle the Coriander-Mint Chutney. Mix well.

Sprinkle salt, black salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala as needed. Adjust the flavors.

Crumble the khakhras into bite size pieces and mix them in the vegetable mixture. Drizzle beaten yogurt and Tamarind Date Chutney.

Divide into 2-3 bowls. Sprinkle Sev/Boondi (which I didn't). Garnish with coriander leaves and serve immediately.

Once the khakhras are added to the mix, it is best to serve immediately else they will become soggy.

Preparation Time 15 min
Serves 2-3
