TAMATAR KI CHAAT/BANARSI TAMATAR KI CHAAT/ बनारसी टमाटर की चाट

Our favourite Chaat dishes are the perfect combination of taste, flavours, crunch and colours. These are sweet, savoury, tangy and spicy in one bite. Different chutneys, curd, some crunch and  fragrant masale or spices make it chatpati or lip-smacking
The origin of chaat is said to be a few cities of Uttar Pradesh and the Old Delhi regions. Afterwards, it was popularized to the other parts of the country and the whole Indian subcontinent. Now we have a big range of chaat dishes to enjoy.

This particular chaat (Tamatar or tomato chaat) is the speciality of Banaras and popular after the name of this holy city, so known as Banarasi Tamatar Ki Chaat. This is as popular as the few others from Banaras, like Banaras Ke Ghaat and Banaras Ka Paan. This lip-smacking chaat is sold on each and every street and ghaats by street hawkers and vendors. The key ingredient is the cooked tomato masala with onions and aloo and served with some crunch like sev or mathri on top along with onions and green chillies
