What happens when two super stars act together in a movie? Well, the Chole Samosa Chaat creates a similar effect because both chole and samose are hot favourites with almost all Indians. When the two are combined and topped with myriad exciting ingredients like tangy chutneys, crunchy onions and crisp sev, the resulting chaat is totally irresistible. This mouth-watering Chole Samosa Chaat is an ever-popular roadside treat in Delhi, and you can find several vendors equipped with large, flat kadhais where the chole keeps simmering, ready to accompany crisp samose with snazzy toppings. You can prepare the chole and the samose in advance, but remember to assemble the chaat just before serving.
