Comfort Food Chaat
One food that unites the entire country would be ‘chaat’. A delectable savory snack made with a combination of lip-smacking ingredients. The base can either be puri, tikki or vada which is smeared with tongue-tickling chutneys, sometimes curd and finally a sprinkle of dry spices, crunchy sev and coriander.
Depending upon the chaat it is stuffed or topped with vegetables.
Previously, chaats were popular street food but these days, even the fanciest of restaurants have an array of chaat on the menu with funky variations.
Stuffed Ragda Patties
Nothing can be more exciting than having a plate of Ragda Pattice, Aloo Chaat or Dahi Vada accompanied by the friendly banter of friends and family. Aloo Tikki chaat from the North, Bhel Puri from the West, Pani Puri from East, honestly, the list is never ending as you have got variations to these delights.
Chaat are the perfect comfort food. They are totally customizable. You can make it just like you want it to be – you can tweak the ingredients used, the level of spiciness, and everything else.
Health freaks can opt for nutritious ingredients like sprouts and low calorie options like oats, khakhra to give a healthy twist to the dish.

Healthy Moong Chaat
There are many variants of Bhel like Sukha bhel and Gila bhel, depending upon the type of chutney used. Golgappe, Phuchka, Gup Chup call them anything, this one snack is loved all over India.
