Recipe of Dahi Puri

Quite rare that the foodie in us wouldn’t want to eat away some unhealthy street food. Often
we try preparing these chaat items at home, but somehow it never tastes like the ones made
by the chaat wala dada. Remember, the key to an awesome chaat is the strong flavours of the
chutney that you would add on to it. Here is my version of the non-ragda Dahi Puri. It might not
taste like the chaat you’re fond of; but it surely would leave you to want for more!


1. Puris
2. Nylon sev
3. Boiled potatoes
4. Finely chopped onions
5. Finely chopped coriander
6. Boondi
7. Dahi (curd)
8. Boiled moong (optional)
9. Chilly powder
10. Paani puri masala/ chaat masala
11. Finely chopped tomatoes for garnish (optional)
12. Farsaan for garnish

For the Pudina chutney:

Method for Dahi Puri:
