Dahi Chana Chaat | How to make Dahi Chana Chaat


Dahi Chana Chaat is a delicious chaat made with chickpeas and potatoes topped with curds, green chutney and sweet tamarind chutney. I understand that this is the most regularly made dish by the Muslim community during Ramzan.  As we are in the month of Ramzan, I thought of sharing this recipe today. Here goes the recipe for this mouthwatering chaat.
