Samosa Chaat

I love samosas. The crunchy exterior and the yummy potato filling inside..what’s not to like! But some times you are left with a few samosas lying around..everyone simply refuses to have just have another one. So, what do you do? Throw them away or give it to your maid? There is a third delicious alternative. You can turn it into a scrumptious chaat. That is exactly what I did the other day and the chaat turned out really well. Onward to the recipe then.

Ingredients:

2 samosas, broken into small chunks

200 gms curd

1 1/2  cup sev

1 onion, chopped

2 tbsp tamarind

2 dates

2 tbsp jaggery

Red chilli powder, as per taste

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon chaat masala

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds

1 tbsp sugar

Salt, as per taste

1/2 cup chopped coriander

Method:

Soak together dates, tamarind and jaggery in some water. Keep aside. In a bowl, whisk together 150 gms curd along with all the condimentss, sugar and salt. Dilute it with a little water and whisk again. You need to thin out the curd because chaat has the tendency to become dry really fast. Now add the samosa chunks, the chopped onions and half of the pomegranate. Using your hand, squeeze out the juice from the tamarind mixture and discard the used tamarind. Now, add half of this chutney to the bowl with the curd and samosas. Sprinkle half cup sev and gently mix everything together. In a separate bowl, whisk together the remaining curd along with some salt and sugar. Pour this curd over the samosa mixture. Pour the remaining tamarind chutney, sev and pomegranate seeds. Garnish with chopped coriander. Let it sit in the fridge for 10 minutes and dig in!
