Name your flavour and you will get it in this chaat. Aromatic herbs, peppy spice powders, crunchy onions and tangy lemon combine excitingly with deep-fried kand cubes, which are tantalisingly crisp outside and soft inside. The most tempting twist in this Kand ki Chaat is the addition of poppy seeds, which impart an intense texture and a very unique aroma when sautéed. You can’t help falling in love with this snack, especially on cold winter days.

This is a superb chaat recipe. Although it dosen''t have any chutneys in it, the spices and masalas used in it gives it a great chatpata flavour. The recipe is also very quick. If the kand is deep fried then it takes only a few minutes to make the dish ready.
