  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • 1 tomato, deseeded, medium chopped
  • juice of 1 to 1 1/2 lemons
  • salt to taste

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients. Mix well. Taste and adjust the chilli powder, salt and lemon juice to get a tangy and spicy taste.

Story:

Chaat is Pakistan Street Food and literally means “to lick.” Traditionally, this road-side snack was used to serve on a leaf and was so tongue-tickling that one could not resist licking the last morsels from the leaf before discarding it.
