Dhai Puri

                           Dhai puri is a satisfying and elegant evening time snack.





This is my favorite chat for ever. The nice thing about dhai puri is that, it can be put into in a flash if some ingredients are handy. Whenever I order dhai puri in a chat shop, I used to think it is very hard to make one in house. But once I found out the recipe I was really surprised how easy it was. The main key ingredients of any chat are the green chutney and the sweet and sour chutney.

Dhai puris are great for any parties or get together as they can be assembled fast. All the preparations can be made in advance and at the last minute it can be built. Love the green chutney and sweet chutney a lot. Sweet chutney can be good in freezer for a very long time. They taste very good for spicy samosa, pani puri, and for behl puri. On the other hand green chutney is also so versatile. They can be used in so many different ways in chats.



Ingredients :

Small Puris – 10
Potato – 2
Chat masala – 1 teaspoon
Whipped Yogurt – 1 cup
Sweet and Sour chutney – ¼ cup (recipe follows)
Green Chutney – ¼ cup (recipe follows)
Chat Masala – ½ teaspoon
Sev – ½ cup
Coriander leaves – ½ bunch
Salt


Procedure :


Boil the potatoes, mash them with chat masala, turmeric and salt.

Make a small hole on the top of the puri and fill them half the way with mashed potato.

Arrange then on the serving plate. Pour some green chutney on top of each puri. Then pour some sweet chutney on top of it.

Finally top it with whipped yogurt and garnish with sev, coriander leaves, chili powder and cumin powder.




Sweet and Sour Chutney:

Pitted dates – 1 ½ cups (chopped into small cubes)
Cumin seeds – 1 tablespoon (Dry roasted for 3 minutes)
Tamarind paste – 1 tablespoon
Chilli powder – 1 teaspoon
Salt
Water




Puree all the above ingredients except water, into a smooth paste. Then add water to adjust the thickness of the chutney. The chutney should be pourable.

(This will keep in the refrigerator up to 6 months thin it with water as necessary. This chutney tastes good with all type of chats.)

Green Chutney:

Mint leaves (chopped) – 1 cup
Coriander leaves (chopped) – 2 cup
Green chillies – 2
Cashew nut – 10
Garlic – 2 cloves
Sugar – 1 teaspoon
Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
Salt




Combine every thing in a blender and grind it smooth paste. (This chutney also tastes great with all types of chat items, I use this for making Bombay sandwiches)
