S U M M E R ! Celebrating the first arrival of organic sweetcorn with this quick & delicious snack. Its lip ‘smackingly’ tasty with lots of vibrant flavours bouncing in your mouth.
Chaat is a savoury snack served on the streets in India, usually as a starter before a main meal or as a quick ‘fill me up’ before supper. Because it is only served in small amounts it needs to pack in all the flavours quickly. Kinda like a flavour explosion – well here is my East-meets-West version including locally grown cape gooseberries.
Crunchy chickpea noodles or ‘crackles’ are the crunchy bits in Indian bombay nuts – they are gluten free and totally addictive! (see kitchen note)
Make your Chaat your own by adding or reducing things that you love or don’t.
Swaps: You can use pomegranate seeds, blueberries (not too sweet) or any other fruit that is firm and kinda sweet and sour.
Getting Ahead: You can make and chop all the elements of the salad separately and only assemble once you are ready to eat.
