Chatpati Chaat platter is a platter where a combination of different lip-smacking chaats has been put together.
Chaat, comes from the word chaatna, which literally means to lick. Chaats are normally eaten with hands and then we just lick our fingers! The chaats originated in Uttar Pradesh, India and now are globally popular. All the chaat khomchawalas or hawkers normally hail from Uttar Pradesh. They have spread all over the world and I doubt if there’s any place where you don’t get chaats.
Born and brought up in Delhi I have always loved Chaats, be it Golgappas, Kalmi Vadas or Dahi Bhallas, they all are my favourite. The savoury snack with tangy, spicy, sweet chutneys is irresistible. Even as a kid when my pocket money was 25 paise, I spent 10 paise on Golgappas and 15 paise on papdi chat which I shared with my cousins. Are you all wondering which era I am talking about – well some five decades back, we could talk in paisas and now you can’t get a decent chaat plate for Rs 25!
My today’s Chaat Platter was made for a friend’s get together. I have already blogged about most of the chaats, but this platter has the Chatpate Chole ki Chaat which is yet to be featured here.
Since I have been born and brought up in Delhi there are a few places that are my favourite and I would highly recommend them to all chaat lovers.
Here is the menu for today’s tongue ticking chaats –
