Delhis street food Palak Papdi Chaat recreated at home

Everytime i crave to eat Palak Papdi Chaat i cant go to Prince Chaat shop at GK m block market ,so today when i felt like eating this chaat,i thought of giving this recipe a try,and i am so glad i tried this out today,here goes the recipe of Palak Papdi Chaat recreated at home,
For Chaat
Tamarind Jaggery chutney
Coriander chutney
red chili powder
cumin powder
boiled potato
For Palak Papdi
Palak leaves washed and dried
gram flour three tbsp
refined oil four tbsp
salt as per taste
red chili powder half tsp
cumin powder half tsp
amchur powder half tsp
mix gramflour with water and salt,red chili powder,amchur powder and cumin powder.
heat oil in wok
lower the flame and dip the dried palak leaves in the besan batter and fry till brown from both sides
drain and keep aside
To Assemble
In a serving dish place the palak papdis
top them with curd,boiled potatoes,papdis,coriander and tamarind chutney,bhujia,red chili powder,cumin powder.
As this was the first time i tried this at home this is what i learnt
- batter should have been more watery
- papdis should be served warm,as they loose their crispiness if serving time is prolonged.
Papdis can be served hot with tea or coffee also
 The above platter is off for Paris event at Foodelicious The Combo event
 and the palak papdi chaat goes to my own event at asankhana Lets Celebrate with Colours
 that all guys enjoy the platter cee u all soon,..;-)
