Sev puri - Basket chaat

Basket chat is a long awaited chat that I have been wanting to try. And its our princess 3rd birthday party today. So I did this as a starter, and it was such a hit! Well I got such appreciation and everyone were thankful for preparing this. This is light to start with, and am sure this will be a hit the first time you prepare!

You need

Tostito's Corn scoops - as required
1 cup boiled and mashed potato
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped tomato
1/4 cup Green chutney
1/2 cup Tamarind Chutney
1/2 cup plain yogurt (beaten)  - Add pinch of salt and a tsp of sugar
1/2 cup fine sev
2 tbsp chat masala
1 tsp red chili powder
2 tsp Coriander powder
2 tsp Cumin powder
Salt to taste
Cilantro for garnishing, finely chopped

Take serving plates. Place 7-10 (as per the plate size) corn scoops in each plate. Fill each scoop with little boiled potato followed by onion and tomatoes. Sprinkle salt, cumin powder, coriander powder and chat masala. Add green chutney and tamarind chutney (since I like it spicy, and I prepare the green chutney very spicy - so I prefer only green chutney) to taste.
Then top it with little yogurt. Sprinkle very little chili powder. Garnish with cilantro and sev.
Taste one scoop and sprinkle little salt if required.

Add the wet ingredients just before serving, otherwise the crispness in the scoops goes off. You can always change the dry ingredients sequence, but it should be added first.

Prepare and enjoy the chunky chat before your meal!

I am sending this recipe for the kids delight event hosted by Srivalli

and to Archana for "Fast Food and Fat Food"
