Pakodi-chaat

In Indian context “Chaat” is what comes to mind as one think about after sweet when it comes to any celebration. Because after having a platter of festival sweets, we always need something to balance that extra sweetness in our taste-bud with spoonful of spicy chat-pata chaat. Isn't it?
After pani-puri ,I always love to pamper my taste bud with a plate of hot pakodi-chaat. This is so perfect to go with any celebration at home .
In each bite you can get a combination of flavors to tickle your taste bud… Sweet,spicy, savory at the same time…And the best thing is that you can always adjust the level of each flavor according to your taste ..Isn’t so cool !!
