Masala Puri Chaat Recipe - Bangalore Style

Masala Puri Chaat Recipe
Chaats always have an extra space even when when my tummy is full. I have tasted masala puri in many places like SKS, A2B etc but the one I love is the street style so I searched for a similar recipe and am glad I found this.

Though the orginal recipe has the tag of bangalore style - I couldnt judge it as I havent tasted the ones at Bglre...And to me this was apt like the street ones which was what I wanted. First when I was cooking the gravy I felt like a overdose of the spices and was skeptical of how it would turn out. But once fully cooked and assembled it tasted awesome, hubby loved it and asked for a extra helping and yes mission accomplished :)

    My Notes:
    • Adding sweet and green chutney is purely optional but I recommend adding them for the extra flavour. I love sweet chutney in masala puris so go for extra helping :)
    • The toppings can be adjusted as per your taste.
    • Make sure to serve while the gravy is still hot to enjoy the taste.
    • I used homemade puris, you can use store bought ones too.
