When you look back at the year that was, butter boards trending online took the internet by storm. Along with the usual charcuterie board at gatherings, sweet and savoury butter boards started to become a regular feature at well-laid out tables. Like every other viral dish gifted by enthusiastic content creators and TikTokers, the butter board started to digress into delicious variations of hummus, yoghurt and ricotta boards.

In the Indian context, while the butter boards are delicious as is, they can be adapted and tweaked to suit the diverse taste palettes of everyone attending a gathering. The chaat board, a yummy, Indianized take on the butter board, is a medley of sweet, tangy, spicy flavours along with textures ranging from creamy smooth to crisp and crunchy. Although the recipe given below is one way to do it, you could use your creativity and use this idea as a canvas to make this board your own in any way you please. Add veggies and chips or puris of your choice and drizzle any number of chutneys on top. Either way, they’ll all be delicious on your party board!
