Chaat is a common Indian street snack (and very often served at weddings as a first course) that consists of crispy bean flour noodles (bhujias), potatoes, chickpeas, cilantro, onion, chutneys, yogurt, and spices.  Here I’ve added some wheat berries to add some whole grain-the nutty chew is a welcome addition.  You can order the bhujias at any ethnic Indian store or online.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup wheat berries, rinsed
  • 2 cups red potatoes, cubed
  • One 5 ounce container of fat-free plain organic Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot chili powder or to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chaat masala
  • Tamarind chutney
  • Bhujia to top

Directions:

  1. Bring large pot of water to a boil.  Add wheat berries and cook until tender, about 50 minutes.
  2. Cook potatoes until just tender.  Meanwhile whisk in enough water to thin out yogurt.  Set aside.
  3. Combine warm wheat berries, warm potatoes, cilantro, red onion, chickpeas, chili powder, salt, and chaat masala.  Top with tamarind chutney, yogurt, and bhujias.  Enjoy!
