CHAAT CHUTNEYS


chaat chutneys

 

I am a big fan of chaat items .I can live with it.Recently i tried dahi vada( will post next).I made these chaat chutneys & the urad dal batter in large quantities, refrigerated it and prepared it for my daughter as evening snack for 3-4 days Winking smile..She loved it a lot.Making varieties of chaat is very easy.If we have these chutneys, oma podi & onions at home , we can make chaat recipes instantly. I used to make a single sweet n sour chutney for chaat which u can find here. But after going through some books and websites , i found there are different varieties of chutneys. So this time i tried all these chutneys.I made them thick & i diluted it while use..I quickly browsed some recipes and i finally settled down with recipes of Few minute wonders..I made some slight changes in the ingredients and the procedure for my comfort Smile..Do try these chutneys , u’ll love it..
