Traditionally, samosas are served with chutney or chole, but this one which is a personal favourite of mine, is a bit different. I have experimented serving them with a coconut kadhi and to add some crunch to the dish, I have added chopped spring onions. This chaat is a meal in itself! The coconut kadhi uses coconut milk which is the liquid extracted with water from the coconut flesh. Coconut milk are now available in tetra packs at grocery stores, so you need not go through the effort of extracting it!
