It's layered with chickpea curry, crispy samosa, chutneys, yogurt, papdi, and sev to hit all the flavor profiles and textures in one dish.

The Chole/chickpeas curry is hearty and warm and the air-fried samosas are crispy on the outside with a flavorful potato stuffing. Papdi and sev add a crunch to the chaat. Onion and coriander leaves add additional freshness and color to the chaat.

My take:

  • If you are making no onion - no garlic version then skip the addition of onion while serving ragda patties.
  • If you are making a vegan version then skip the addition of yogurt while serving samosa chat.
  • If you want ragda thicker, then you can add boiled and mashed potatoes.
  • I have served chole chaat with Air Fried Samosas.
