Recipe Instructions

For the Puris: Make a dough which is firm but elastic (like pizza dough) break into usable chunks. The easiest way is to roll out a big circle like a chappati and using a small round pastry cutter or a jar lid cut the circles the puris are usually tiny bite size circles, deep fry until golden brown.

For the Green Chutney: Put all the ingredients into a processor and process! Should turn into a paste if its too dry add a little water to make chutney.

Take the potatoes chop roughly sprinkle with some of the chaat masala and corinder leaves and mix. Take the bowl you are going to serve in and arrange some puris inside. Place a little of the potatoe mix on each of them. Sprinkle some of the chopped onion, take some of the yogurt and pour on top, add some tamarind and date chutney and some green chutney on top of that, sprinkle with chaat masala, and a little salt if you wish and serve.
