Katori Chaat


  • 100 gm chikpeas (kabuli chana) soaked overnight
  • 150 ml curd
  • 1 cup maida
  • 1 onion chopped
  • Raw mango
  • 2 boiled potato
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • Green chutney
  • Tamarind chutney

For garnish

  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander
  • Sev
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate

For green chutney

  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 3 to 4 green chillies
  • A small piece of ginger
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt

For tamarind chutney

  • 1 cup tamarind pulp
  • 20 gm jaggery
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin power


For green chutney

  • Put all ingredients in a jar. Add water and blend it well.

For tamarind chutney

  • In a vessel, heat one cup of tamarind pulp.
  • Add jaggery and mix well to avoid lumps. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add red chilli powder and cumin powder and stir well.
  • Once it bubbles, turn off heat and allow it to cool.

To make katori

  • Mix maida, oil, salt and water to make a dough. Allow it to set for 10 minutes.
  • Make 3 or 4 balls from the dough.
  • Roll it to flatten a bit. Make some holes using a fork.
  • Take a small katori or cup of your choice. Apply some oil and coat it from the outside with flattened dough. Pinch off the excess.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai and slowly dip the katori in oil to deep fry it.
  • Soon, the katori will dry up, allowing you to remove the bowl. Now turn it upside down and fry it on both sides.

For stuffing

  • In a bowl, add chickpeas, potato, onion, tomato, chopped raw mango, coriander leaves, chilli powder, black salt, cumin powder, green and tamarind chutney.
  • Add some curd and mix well.
