Samosa Chaat

Samosa chaat

Samosa chaat is really easy to make. You can use good quality shop bought samosa or make your own.

Samosa chaat is always a big hit at my weekly curry feasts!

Samosa chaat is an excellent way to use up leftover samosas. Your samosa chaat will be better, however if you make the samosas just for it.

Crispy samosas right out of the hot oil take this popular chaat to a whole new level.

You could use any samosas for your samosa chaat, even shop bought but homemade will usually be better. When I teach my vegetarian Indian street food class, I always ensure this one is on the menu. 

People who try it for the first time simply can’t believe how good samosa chaat is. I mean… it looks a mess but that is exactly why samosa chaat is so delicious. 

In India, this popular street food dish is eaten by hand but I have found here in the west that most people prefer a fork and knife.

It is messy after all. 

Make this samosa chaat recipe your own.

There is so much going on in this one! From the soothing yoghurt sauce to the sour tamarind it is amazing. Spice it up with some coriander and chilli and you are in for a treat! 

Like all good Indian food, it is important to taste as you go. Get the right flavour balance you you are in for samosa chaat heaven.

So feel fry to adjust this recipe.

Hi Ian

Fine sev is the yellow, rice looking stuff on top. Really good. It's made from gram (chickpea) flour and can be purchased online and at many Asian shops.

Thanks, Dan
