While going through my recipe index a few days back, I noticed that there were a very few chaat recipes in my blog. Shouldn't be unexpected though from a chaat lover like me as I eat them before it could get photographed. I have not posted many of these recipes earlier but you would definitely see most of them in my blog very soon.
While I love all kind of chaat varieties, my all time favorite is Golgappa/Pani puri and Bangarpet Pani Puri.Apart from those pani puri varieties, I love masala puri, sev puri, papdi chat and dahi puri. Back home apart from my dad, we are all chaat lovers .While we eat chaats as a meal but my dad always prefers to eat it as a evening snack and so is the case with my husband now.Now I have successfully converted him so he can also have Golgappe and Bangarpet Pani puri as a meal.
Coming to today's chaat recipe,Dahi puri is one of the easiest chaat to prepare and would always turn out delicious.The balance of sweetened curds with the tangy and spicy chutneys in a crisp puri shell filled with sprouts and potatoes is definitely a winner on any palate.I am sure most of you would have tried this at least once,if you had not tried it I would suggest to give this lip smacking chaat recipe a try for sure.
Dahi Puri | Dahi Poori Chaat Recipe:
(makes 2 plates- you can easily double,triple the recipe)

14 small puffed puris(Homemade/Readymade)
1/3 cup Moong sprouts,steamed
2 Potatoes,boiled,peeled and chopped
1 Onion,finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh Coriander
1/3 cup fine Sev
1 1/2 cups fresh thick Curd
2-3 tbsp Sugar
1/4 cup Kharjur-Imli chutney
1/4 cup Green chutney
1 tbsp roasted Cumin powder
1 tsp Red chili powder
1 tsp Chaat masala
Salt to taste
  • Add enough salt to potatoes while cooking them.Peel the potatoes and chop them into fine pieces.
  • Steam moong sprouts with a pinch of salt for 5-6 mins.
  • Beat fresh curds nicely and add sugar,salt and 1tsp roasted cumin powder and mix well.
  • Gently poke a small hole in puris and arrange them on 2 plates,7 each.

  • Fill them with 1/2 tsp steamed moong sprouts and then followed by 1 tsp boiled and chopped potatoes.
  • Add 1/2 tsp chopped onion in each puri.

  • Add little bit of kharjur -imli chutney and green chutney.Then add beaten curd generously(3-4 tbsp) to each puri,do not bother even if curd flows all over the puri.Pour the remaining curds all over the puris(I missed to show this step in the photos).

  • Again top it with a generous drizzle of kharjur-imli chutney and green chutney.
  • Sprinkle a fat pinch of roasted cumin powder,red chili powder,chaat masala and salt.

  • Top it with sev generously and garnish with coriander.
Serve it immediately.
Do not keep it for long as it will become soggy,so prepare this just before serving,Keep all the ingredients ready before you serve this.
  • There are no specific measurements for this recipe.All the ingredients are adjusted according to your taste buds.
  • You can make more number of plated increasing the quantities accordingly,there are no measurements.

I know many of you must be drooling over this delicious Dahi puri,hence thought of treating you all with this one.
