Serving Suggestion

This beloved Indian street food is tasty all on its own – it’s got the perfect mix of spicy, tangy, and sweet notes. You don’t need anything else to enjoy its deliciousness.

However, if you’re in the mood, pairing it with a steaming cup of Masala Chai is always a fantastic idea. That’s my preferred way to enjoy it – a delightful combo of flavors!

Be sure to put together the dahi papdi chaat recipe right before serving. If you wait too long, the papdi might lose its crunchiness and turn soggy. So, for the best taste and texture, assemble the chaat just before enjoying it!
