Papdi Chaat as the name comes to ear your stomach gives the signal, I am hungry! Does this ever happen to you? And if the clear HD image of Papdi Chaat served with that dancing tiny sev, cute red pomegranate, and the hot colorful chutneys, OMG! They just blow my mind. Trust me, I can’t stop placing an order or running to my workstation(Kitchen) to create that messy yet tasty mouth-watering Papdi Chaat. 

Chaat is something that anyone can cook, but to be frank, only a Chaat lover can give that tempting tangy, zesty, spicy, sweet, and most importantly balanced taste. 

At Vijay Dairy, we serve that exact tempting taste and make your footfall again and again. We serve the plate with a perfect crisp Papdi, topped with Vijaydairy’s special curd giving you that rich creamy feeling, making you crave more. 

Everywhere in north India, you can find this Chaat. The most popular and loved snack. How is Papdi Chaat different from sevpuri? 

Papdi Chaat gives you a rich creamy taste of curd and blends the nutrients of boiled chickpea and potato. Sev puri is served without curd and chickpea. Papdi Chaat is beyond anything for curd lovers. This gives the same tangy, sweet, spicy, crispy, zesty, piquant taste as sev puri with the soft creaminess of curd. 

What makes a tasty Papdi Chaat? 

The crispy flats 

The Papdi is made from all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. Some make by mixing both. The best part of Papdi is that they are soft, yet crispy. I just love the sound which comes out when chewing that crispy Papdi, have you tried eating them alone and feeling that kur kur sound? 

Pre-cooks 

Boiled potato and white chickpea. They are taste binders. The reality is every Chaat has potatoes in it. And we want that softness and mildness of potatoes in the spicy bite. 

Chutney 

The real tastemakers of Chaat, CHUTNEY. Preparing that tasty chutney with proper levels of ingredients is an art. The perfect tanginess and spiciness just blow your mind. 

The leader of taste – Curd 

It’s important to have thick, creamy, and properly mixed curd. Many people even prefer to add sugar powder to curd to get a sweet and sour taste. 

The sprinkles 

They are taste enhancers, Chaat masala, black salt, and jeera powder. Tiny small cut cubes of tomatoes and onions. The boldly dancing cute little yellow vermicelli (sev).The red hot pomegranate, and India’s famous garnishing ingredient, coriander. 

Papdi Chaat is such a delicious snack that allows many variations. You can make it as healthy as you want by baking the Papdi’s, adding sprouts, and balancing the flavors. 

Do you also get that excitement of creating that messy kitchen and tasting each chutney, eating raw boiled potatoes, and singing slow music while cooking… Then come let’s go in and make our, ”Made with love platters”.
