Indian Street Food: Your Guide to Chaat

Indian Street Food: Your Guide to Chaat

I think one of the things I miss most about living in New York is Indian Food. My friend Teryn and I would walk around the corner from our offices on Park Avenue to the row of (mostly) South Indian restaurants in the 30s along 3rd Avenue. Incredible Dosas at Saravanaa Bhavan, Roti Wraps at Roomali, and—probably our favorite—Bhel Puri and other renditions of Indian Street Food at Bhojan. I’d have some kind of Indian food for lunch at least once a week if not two or three times. There’s nothing like it here, really.

I was thrilled when Sunset Magazine, last April, had an article on Indian Street Food with a list of restaurants in the West where someone like me can indulge her craving. (There are lots of options in the Bay Area… the East Bay in particular.) They also furnished a list of resources for buying ingredients.

One day, we’re going to back to India and take a culinary tour consisting entirely of street snacks.

Do you like Indian Food? Do you have a good recipe for Bhel Puri to share?

P.S. Aron and I have taken a couple of South Indian cooking classes on date nights in Davis. If you’re local and looking for some instruction, check out the Co-Op!
