Hello dear buddies. How have you been? After the chilly winters receding now, spring has entered in India. The weather has become awesome with mild breeze, sunshine and lots of cravings to eat something spicy, tasty and fun. In Delhi, it is quite normal watching people especially ladies going for shopping and enjoying chats and golgappas. So today I am making this samosa chat recipe for my daughter, Ambika. The recipe is as follows—–
Ingredients:-For making the pea gravy—
- White Peas – 250 gms
- Onions(big) – 1
- Ginger-Garlic Paste – 1 tsp
- Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp
- Roasted Cumin Powder – 1 tsp
- Garam Masala – 1 tsp
- Tomato Puree – 1 tbsp
- Salt – According to taste
- Vegetable Oil – 1 tbsp
For the samosa chat-—
- Green Chillies-2
- Green Chutney-1 tbsp
- Red Chutney(dry mango chutney)-1 tbsp
- Black Salt – 1 tsp
- Lemon Juice-2 tsp
- Fresh chopped coriander-For garnish
To make the white peas, wash and soak them overnight. Boil them the next day.
To make the chole, take a pan. Add vegetable oil. Add the chopped onions and stir for three minutes. Next, add the ginger-garlic paste. Saute again for a minute or two. Now add the dry masalas, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, roasted cumin powder and garam masala. Add the tomato puree and fry everything for three minutes. Add the boiled peas and water and let it cook for five minutes on medium flame. The final gravy should be thick.
Our Peas are done. Keep aside.
Now to make the chat let’s assemble the ingredients together. For that, firstly chop the onions, green chilies, fresh coriander and prepare the two chutneys, one is the green chutney made from coriander, mint, green chilies and the other is red chutney, made from dry mango or amchur powder both of which I have made in one of my earlier blogs. Please refer to the recipe from there.
Break the samosas into halves. Pour some pea gravy on them. Now drizzle the two chutneys on tops of the samosas. Next sprinkle the onions, green chilies, coriander all over them. Lastly, squeeze some lemon juice to get that zing!!
Our Samosa Chat is ready. Have it as a funky snack.
