Dahi Channa Chat (chick peas with yogurt sauce)


Dahi Channa chat has very different recipes in every house hold... I usually make them on brunches or as a high tea snack - light and yummy to have... dahi baray with chick peas and with tamarind sauce  makes it tangy and sweet...so though to share it with you guys... Ramazan are not too far so you all can try it... so ingredients are:

Dahi baray:

Gram flour (besan) 1 tbsp heaped
Flour (maida) 1 tbsp heaped
salt a pinch
baking soda 1/4 tsp
baking pd 1/4 tsp

yogurt 1 cup
sugar 6 tsp

tamarind Sauce:

tamarind paste 1 tsp
water 1 cup
salt 1/4 tsp
sugar 8 - 10 tsp

Chick peas
chat masala for sprinkling 

To start with first make Dahi bara... for that... in a bowl take gram flour, flour, salt, baking soda and baking pd and make a thick paste with water...



Drop batter with a spoon in hot oil... and fry them till golden brown


and soak them in water...for about 2-4 minutes till they soak water and become soft


Separately whip yogurt and add sugar in it


 Then take the soaked piece in palm... squeeze them with other palm and add in the whipped sweet yogurt


Do the same with all patties add them in sweetened yogurt


Cover them care fully with yogurt..and keep them in the fridge



if you make extra... after squeezing them you can freeze them for future use


place the squeezed patties in plastic freezer bag... when ever you want them again... just thaw them and add in yogurt











Now, for tamarind sauce:

here we get paste...so i used that... if u have pulp so you can use that with lesser water

cook everything in a pot till sugar mixed properly


taste and adjust sugar..and keep it aside


Now, assembling and serving....

place the dahi bara on serving plate


scatter chick peas over it


pour the tamarind sauce around 2-3 tbsp or according to your taste


sprinkle chat masala over it... and serve :)
