Samosa Chaat

Hello my dear Friends !! I am back with a mouthwatering Starter dish J. Presenting Samosa Chaat !!

Samosa Chaat is one of the most popular chaats in India.  Samosa is broken into pieces and severed with the chole / channa gravy, green and sweet chutney and with freshly chopped veggies as toppings. It is a filling dish.

I had a few mini frozen samosas, homemade sweet and green chuntey at home. I just had to make the gravy to go with. My family simply loved and relished Samosa Chaat!! Hope you will try to make this dish and relish it as well.. Until then, bye J!!!
