Dal Pakodi Chaat

Who in India doesn’t love Chaat and salivate at the thought of it? We all do and it’s normal that we do. With the tangy & sweet Chutneys that we garnish with and other garnishes, Chaats make a wholesome meal in itself. For Karwa Chauth I made Dal Pakodi Chaat and I simply licked my fingers, it was so yumm! #MadhubishsKitchen #DalPakodiChaat
