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 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

yogurt 1 cup
sugar 6 tsp

tamarind Sauce:

tamarind paste 1 tsp

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

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:
