BM # 71
Week 2, Day 3
Theme: Birthday Snacks
Kids and grown ups love chats and they are just a perfect snack for serving at parties. These Basket Chats are simple and quick to make and make a real party pleaser. The baskets are store bought and the chutneys can be made in advance. All you need is some boiled potatoes and some chopped onions. The Sev too can be store bought or made in advance. These Baskets too can be made at home, but I have used store bought ones. Chats are very popular in Uttar Pradesh and I made these as a part of my Thali from the state.
