Recently, a vendor from Chandni Chowk, Delhi, has gained huge popularity on the internet for his 7 matke wali chaat. Here is the video. Take a look: 

Chaat is one of the most loved street foods and is immensely popular all over the country. Made with boiled potatoes, grains, crispy papdi, yoghurt, flavourful chutneys, and loads of aromatic spices, this street delight has numerous varieties. Some popular ones are papdi chaat, aloo chaat, chana chaat, samosa chaat, and so on. In the video, the vendor is preparing his special recipe with the ingredients kept in the seven earthen pots, after which the dish is named.

He starts by dipping some crispy papdi in curd and tangy chutney, followed by a handful of crispy taro pieces and boiled potatoes. Then he adds some boiled chickpeas and potatoes, salt, masala mix, and yellow chilli powder. He also layers the chaat with a spoonful of curd and sweet chutney. For enhancing the flavour of the chaat, he is using ginger-chilli paste and a spoonful of coriander-mint chutney.

The chaat costs Rs. 70, and with its popularity, we can guess that it tastes delicious. He also sells kanji vada along with his special chaat.
