kachori chaat

This Kachori chat plays with your taste buds, its sweet, sour, spicy, crunchy, crispy, soft............heavenly and mouth watering.

I knew I could make chaat at home but I always felt it would not taste as good as the roadside chaat shop.
After I made this I proved myself wrong.
I can confidently put up a chaat corner at the next family party.
