These Chola Chaat Tokris are my favourite way to eat chola chaat. They look absolutely adorable and easily become the focal point of any table setting. I found these tokris at my local Indian store but if you cannot find them, you can also use phyllo cups. I have also topped them with pomegranate seeds and they taste great with those too. If you do make chola chaat, do share your thoughts with me.
Chola Chaat Tokris
- 2 cans of garbanzo beans (boil with a pinch of baking soda drain and set aside)
- 1 large red onion diced
- 2 potatoes boiled, peeled and diced
- 1 green chili finely chopped
- 1 tomato diced
- 1 bunch cilantro finely chopped
- Red chili flakes to taste
- 2 tsp dry roasted and crushed cumin seed
- 2 tablespoons chaat masala or to taste
- 1 box of the tokris (edible mini baskets)
- 1 small packet of nylon sev
- 1/2 cup imli ki chutney here’s the recipe for the chutney
- In a large bowl combine all the ingredients together. At this point you can add enough tamarind chutney to reach your desired consistency. I like my consistency to be not too liquify. Please add according to your taste. At this point taste it and add more spices if desired.
- Let that marinate for a couple of hours
- Fill the tokris with the chaat and top with crushed sev.
