Indian street food is a snack of endless varieties, eaten on the run. It is served and sometimes entirely prepared on the street. It is eaten while standing, also on the street, for the most part. Across India, street food can range from the kebabs of Lucknow, to the kathi rolls of Calcutta. But the iconic street food of Delhi is chaat, a variety of snacks that are meant to deliver a rave of tastes and sensations to the tongue, from crunchy to soft, tart to hot and sweet. Chaat is as fast and cheap as any American fast food, but it’s made often without meat or deep-frying, so it has the added appeal of being good for you. But the real reason to seek it out is that it’s flat-out delicious. Most chaat is a blend of some kind of crispy starch (wheat flour, garbanzo bean flour) or soft dumplings made from lentil or garbanzo batter combined with potatoes, garbanzo beans and sometimes sprouted beans. Spicy and sweet sauces—typically a green mint and/or cilantro sauce and a tamarind and/or date sauce—as well as yogurt are the classic accompaniments.
