A chaat is a typical street food which we all love munching. Infact it is one of its kind with least side effects and health issues. Thus, a chaat can be somewhat stated to be one of the healthiest forms of street food. Now, the concept of a chat isn’t limited to a simple Papri chat that we, the residents of Kolkata, are generally used to having. A chaat can be much more than that, with a wide variety and diverse flavours. Thus, Rasam, which is a pure veg south indian restaurant under The Stadel is organizing a Chatpati Chaat Festival named as ‘Chat on Chaat‘, introducing five distinct chats that are perhaps totally new in the market of Kolkata.
Rasam is very popular among the vegetarian community and remains crowded throughout the day. It is the best pure veg south indian restaurant in the whole of salt lake area. Some of their specialities are the cheese dosa, uttapams, dancing coffee and their lassi. The food is served and prepared in a traditional way. Panchphoron was invited at the pre-inauguration of the Chaat Festival at Rasam. The chaat festival includes five south indian chats which are sure to impress the ones looking for something spicy and tangy.
Aloo Bonda Dahi Chaat
This was prepared using aloo bonda, curd and boondi.
Alugadda Garelu Chaat
This included potato, vada, onion, curd and amra.
Bombai Rawa Chaat
This was prepared with rawa, onion, tomato, coconut, curd and papad.
Dibba Roti Chaat
This was prepared with onion uttapam, tomato, curd and murmure
Ulli Pakodai Chaat
This was prepared with besan, rice powder, onion curd, cabbage and carrot.
Each of the five chaats is priced at ₹90 plus taxes. I got to taste all five and each one was delicious. I loved the varied ingredients used, making each chaat completely different from the other both in terms of taste and presentation. My favourites are definitely the Ulli Pakodai Chaat, due the crispiness of the fritters which imparted an amazing texture to it and the Alugadda Garelu Chaat, due to its amazing taste and the wise choice of ingredients. Each chaat comes with three condiments – curd, coriander chutney and tangy red chutney so that you can add them as per requirements. Also there will a pair of tamarinds with each chat to adjust the amount of sourness.
Thus to taste chaats like never before, come to Rasam and indulge into amazing and mouthwatering chaats. The festival will begin on 16th of September and would continue till the 24th of the month. So, chaat lovers hurry up to avail the chaats within this limited period festival !
