STEP BY STEP

Samosa Chaat is one of the most popular Indian street foods. Samosa tastes delicious when eaten on its own however addition of spicy and tangy toppings takes this humble deep-fried delicacy to another level.
Samosa is generally made with boiled potatoes, but here Chef Pankaj adds some more vegetables and potatoes to the samosa to make it healthier for kids. 
The crispy and crunchy samosa topped with beaten curd, spicy and tangy chutneys, and zesty ghughni makes for a lip-smacking and drool-worthy snack that is perfect as a cheat day dish for the kids.
