Yum-yum! A snack can’t get tastier than this. In fact, it is so tasty, you will be left wondering whether you had Crispy Rice Noodles with Vegetable Salad or a tongue-tickling chaat.

A plateful of deep-fried rice noodles is topped with a crunchy veggie salad and a tangy dressing. The twist in this whole dish lies in the dressing, which has a very desi flavour thanks to ingredients like jaggery, tamarind pulp and black salt.

You can deep-fry the noodles in advance and store it in an airtight container, but assemble this dish just before serving to enjoy the exciting mix of textures and flavours.

A great Party snack and salad that you can dish up quickly.
