Palak ( Spinach ) Dahi Papdi Chaat Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 23:51:00
Today, I would love to share Palak Dahi Papdi chaat which is different from the Papdi Chaat that I had previously posted. Usually Palak leaves ( spinach leaves ) are dipped in Bengal gram flour ( besan )  but I have given a twist in this recipe taking inspiration from a restaurant. Here, we fry palak dipped in a batter and mix it with curds and other spices. The chaat masala and the green chutney lend their tangy touch to the chaat and make the dish lip smacking. The interplay of the green chutney and the sweet chutney is a delight to behold and savour especially when this chaat is pepped up with kala namak and chaat masala.
