  • Papdi Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon semolina
  • 1/2 teaspoon black onion seed/nigella kalonji/nigella seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • approximately 1/3 cup warm water
  • oil fry frying
  • Dahi Papdi Chaat Ingredients:
  • 16 papdi
  • 1 potato boiled until cooked, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chickpeas canned or cooked until tender
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chile powder cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 plum tomato finely chopped
  • 1/4 English cucumber finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup mint chutney
  • 1/4 cup date tamarind chutney
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sev
  • 1/2 teaspoon chaat masala


  • Combine flour, semolina, onion seed, salt and ghee in a large bowl and mix well. Add water a little at a time, until you have a soft dough.
  • Cover with a damp towel and leave to rest for 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 8 equal sized balls.
  • On a lightly floured board, roll out one ball into a round circle as thin as possible. Dust flour on top as necessary to avoid sticking. Prick with a fork. Using a 2 1/2" biscuit/cookie cutter, cut out rounds. Repeat until all the dough has been utilized.
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying.
  • Place cut out rounds in oil in a single layer and fry until both sides are golden brown.
  • Now, let's put together our chaat
  • In a small bowl, combine the chickpeas, potato, salt and red chile powder. Stir to combine.
  • In a small bowl, combine tomato and cucumber. Stir to combine. (onion would normally also be included, but I do not like raw onion)
  • In a small bowl, whisk yogurt with the sugar.
  • On each papdi, spread a little of the mint chutney.
  • Add a little of the chickpea-potato combination. Add the tomato-cucumber combination on top. Top with a little of the date-tamarind chutney.
  • Add a dollop of sweetened yogurt on top.
  • Sprinkle chaat masala on top.
  • Garnish with sev on top.
