Baked Katori chaat

Katori final

About:

Traditionally Katori are made with All Purpose flour and deep fried. Here I tried to use whole wheat flour and baked them.

Katori chaat can be made with different fillings like fruits or sprouts or salads or any other choice of yours. Here I filled them with Chickpeas, Mix of Veggies, Fresh Raw Mango and Potatoes. To spicy it up have used homemade Green Chutney, Sweet and Tamarind Chutney.

Yields: 10-12
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

For Katoris/Tarts:

  • Whole wheat flour-1cup
  • Corn flour/Corn Starch-1tsp

  4. I REALLY like your food, Chitra ! – I like the combination of simple and yummy. But there are various things I don’t have in my tiny kitchen, and I shall have to think about whether or not to get them … It’s very difficult living on your own to have all the infrastructure you need to meet the requirements of all these wonderful on-line recipes …

      • To start with we’re talking … erhmm … ‘hardware’: I have neither rolling-pin nor muffin tray. This is what I mean about the infrastructure: if I buy these, I will never give them enough use to justify the cost or the trouble of finding somewhere to store them ! :-\
        I know I sound like a whinger, and I’m sorry.

      • It is really challenging for me to think of an alternative..but the dough can be evenly spread and make a shape using hands..Hope this help Margaret
