For the second day for the Street Food, I had another twist of the same things and presented in a different form. I got Pav buns, Burger Buns, in the hope of making something else. I also made sure I made a lot of Meetha Chutney, Mint Coriander Chutney to last me for a couple of dishes. I remembered on time to soak the Kabuli channa in the morning, knowing full well that I wanted to add the channa to the chat that I was planning.
I really wonder how one ends up doing something so entirely from what originally was planned. I wanted to make Potato chat, some papadi chat etc. I ended up making chats with pav buns and burger buns. As I said you can simply customise your chats however way you want. And still know what you make, still gets so appreciated. Better than the Aloo Tikki Chat, this burger bun Tikki Chat so much.
I resisted the urge to add cheese to it, keeping it purely with the Indian add ons that make up a chat. I decided what mattered, in the end, is the fact that food disappeared fast and in fact wanted to be repeated again. The next day when I made something else, though was loved, fell short when compared with this.
Sending this to Preeti, who is hosting Kid’s Delight Event, themed on Street Food.
