Mewa Malai Chaat (dry Fruits Chaat)

The first time I had this chaat, I was quite surprised and was eager to know the recipe as I could not actually understood what I was eating? So I went straight to the chaat corner in my Cousins' wedding and asked them to prepare it in front of me. The process was quite simple and innovative....something which we cannot imagine. They used dry fruits to make chaat. I think it is the most healthy chaat we can ever have. So for all the chaat lovers, here is the most awesome and quick to make chaat.
