Samosa Chaat, Tastes like Heaven

IMG_20130303_145655 (1)

I love samosas. I love chaat. I love samosa chaat. Chaats are savory Indian snacks. They are served pretty much at all roadside dhabas in India, as well as any chaat house in the US and plenty of Indian restaurants. The taste of this dish seems like it should be a sin. Here is how to make your own.


  • Samosas, 2 homemade or store bought
  • onions, red, 1/2
  • tomatoes, 1 medium, diced
  • garbanzo beans, 1 can rinced and without liquid
  • butter or oil, 2 tbsp
  • turmeric, 1/4 tsp
  • red chili powder, 1/4 tsp
  • coriander powder, 1/2 tsp
  • cumin powder, 1/2 tsp
  • salt, to taste
  • coriander leaves, 2 tbsp chopped
  • yogurt, 2 tbsp, whisked
  • green chutney, 2 tbsp
  • sweet chutney, 2 tbsp

To Make:

In a hot skillet, add butter. Once it melts add the garbanzo beans, half of the onions, and half of the tomatoes. Cook for 3 minutes then add all of the powders and salt. Cook for another 3-4 minutes, adding water if you want it a little runny and adjusting spices accordingly.

Take a plate or bowl, and add a layer of the garbanzo mixture. Break up the samosas into chunks and add on top, then add another layer of the mixture. Top with the rest of the onions and tomatoes, along with cilantro, yogurt, and chutneys.
