Mixed Sprouts Chaat

Chaat, in Hindi literally means 'To Lick'. Traditionally these roadside snacks were served on a leaf and it was so tongue-tickling that one could not resist licking the last morsels from the leaf before discarding it, thereby giving a descriptive name to the cuisine. And truly, Chaat tastes best when had on the roadside.

I & Shankar both love chaat. Our weekends are never complete without our regular visit to the local Chaat Wallah. The ChaatWallah across our street makes a lovely Chaat with Mung Sprouts. Its lip smackingly delicious & healthy as well .. I bought a packet of mixed sprouts from the supermarket & made a different version of out favorite Sprouts Chaat

Mixed Sprouts Chaat


You Will Need:
  • 2 handfuls of mixed sprouts ( I used Green Mung. Green peas, Black eyed peas, Kala Channa )
  • 1 small onion - finely chopped
  • 1 meduim sized potato - peeled. boiled & chopped into small cubes
  • 1/2 red pepper - finely diced
  • 1/2 yellow pepper - finely diced
  • 1/2 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1 /2 tsp chaat masala
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Salt as per taste
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • fresh coriander for garnish
  • Fine Sev for garnish
How To:
  • In a large bowl, all the ingredients mentioned except the ones for garnish. Mix well. Serve them in individual bowls & garnish with coriander & Sev before serving .. Enjoi !!!
NOTE:
  •  You can omit the use of olive oil, if you do not like the flavour ..
  • Add a handful of grated carrots & a handful of chopped cucumber for extra crunch
