Chaat , topped with crunchy vegetables, laced with spice powders and pepped up with lime and coriander always feels light and refreshing, but is laden with hidden calories, especially in the deep-fried savouries it contains.

Here is a lighter version of the ever popular Sev Puri , made using Baked Papdis topped with spicy rajma topping and nourishing tamato chutney. You can stock up a larger batch of baked papdis, sev and tomato chutney, to whip up not just Low Calorie Sev Puri but also other favourite chaats any time you are hungry.

Fabulous Mumbai roadside snack available at every street corner eaten on a disposable paper plate. This is a healthier version using baked puris instead of fried puris.
