Raj Kachori Chaat


Chaat is a type of mouth watering and popular roadside snack all over India. Raj Kacohri Chaat is made of crispy kachoris garnished with a delicious combination of potatoes, sprouts, chickpeas, yogurt, coriander leaves, sev and flavored with spices and red & green chutneys. Longtime back I had the opportunity to have Raj kachori chat @ Mayfair BBSR. I have tried it @ many other places but they couldn't match my 1st experience.
