Katori Chaat

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.

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.
