Chat is one of the best thing to do for snacking…I wanted to try all chat items at home atleast once,but it never happened in india.While,we mostly dependant on homemade food here,I get a chance to try to make some of the chat recipes.In india,me and my friend used to share this chat in evenings.She always have one of channa chat on same place.I used to order extra mirchi ,and push all the mirchi other side and she screams on and off during the bites.Later she prefered ordering her own than sharing mine.If you have to order two plates,always order extra mirchi for you and swap the plates.Bingo,you will end up seeing hilarious screaming and drama flowing on.Just kidding.I had some left over channa masala ,so i made this chat.Of course,every bite had a burst of flavors.
