Green Peas Masala Chaat/Peas Chaat/Pacha Pattani Masala Chaat

'Chaat', the word itself makes me drool, am an ardent fan of chaat foods. These street foods are my most favourite foods and i can survive for many days with this incredible foods. If i crave for some street foods, i dont have any other option than dishing out myself at home. Yes we dont have chaat food stalls in Paris, heard that some Indian restaurants serves chaat foods, my friends said that they are not super fantastic hence i dropped the idea of tasting chaat foods in restaurants. However if you know how to dish out those fabulous street foods at home, its better to make it out ourselves na. Healthwise and tastewise nothing can beat the homemade stuffs,obviously since ever i started making chaat foods at home, i dont hesitate a second to dish out myself.
