There is nothing better than a nice paper-plate piled high with freshly thrown-together spicy chaat from the wayside bandi. Except sheeny silverware piled high with freshly thrown-together spicy chaat from the local five-star restaurant. Ahem, we know we have opponents to that point of view, but you have to admit that if the five-star chaat manages the same snappy, tangy flavour, it does have its own charm.
Find out at Deccan Pavilion's Delhi Chaat Festival that is on till the 19th of March. They have Dahi Bhallas, Papdi Chaat, Pani Puri, Bhel Puri, Dahi Pakodi, Chole Bhature and Alu Chaat, served to you with an explanation of their recipe delivered in prim English, and tossed up by a chef with a pristine white hat. And is it as fiery and flavorful as the bandiwaala chat? Yes, yes and a resounding yes!
There are sweet dishes to calm down the frayed taste-buds after you are done dousing them with the tangy sauces. Malpua, Fruit Kulfi and Fruit Chaat, served hot or frozen, should help you round off this chaat binge into a proper meal.
