Street food —- n ME !!!! We are linked so close to each other 😛 Especially the chaat corner literally drives me crazy !!! I dont find a good chaat corner here in this place where I stay and that is the main reason I opened my own chaat corner in my kitchen to fulfil my needs 🙂
Street food captures everybody’s heart ! No age limits ! From a toddler to an old man most of them have a liking towards street foods. Every city have their own famous street foods. Back home, there is one, which I still visit without fail whenever I visit my mum ! There are few chaat recipes which are unusal and is confined to the city giving less chance of its exposure. Now when blogging world is vast !!! I am grabbing the opportunity to introduce this street chaat which is one of my favourite as well.
Nippattu is a spicy, deep fried snack made using Rice flour which has its origin from Karnataka. Like Nippattu there are few more popular snack items like Chakkli and Kodbale and there is a long list. I do not want to bore you by just mentioning the names 🙂 All these snack items are readily available in bakeries and without wasting anytime I grabbed a pack of those when I visited mom recently. I shall make nippattu soon myself and post the recipe but for now I have used the store bought one for this chaat.
