This is one of the easiest appetizers to put together for a crowd. All you need is katoris and some cucumbers, potatoes and chutneys. These are usually served in flat fried tiny puris called papdi, but this is a more fancier way of serving.
Let’s get to the katoris or the bowls, shells or canapes. They are easily available at Walmart or you could make them at home, which will be another post.
The filling for the katoris can be anything you fancy. Potato, cucumber, sprouted mung beans, diced fruits of choice, cooked chana or chole, the list is endless.
The mention of the word ‘chaat’ is incomplete without chutneys -cilantro-mint and tamarind.
Let’s get to the recipe.
About 30 minutes
20 shells or katoris
1 boiled and cubed potato
¼ cup finely diced cucumber
¼ cup finely diced tomato
6 tbsp sprouted whole green mung
6 tbsp tamarind chutney
6 tbsp cilantro-mint chutney
4 tbsp fine sev
6 tbsp pomegranate arils
Salt to taste
1 tsp red chili powder
Bake the shells as per package directions. Once cool add the diced veggies, sprouts then top with chutneys, sprinkle salt and red chili powder. Lastly add sev and pomegranate and serve immediately.
The famous proverb "you are what you eat” as quoted by the French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is very true. Food nourishes you from the inside out. Good health is of utmost importance to me. Vegetarianism and Veganism are gaining immense popularity these days. Natural, organic, healthy and homemade is my mantra.
