Monsoon chat

It was raining when we were returning from work today. The slight drizzle, the cool breeze and an upbeat mood- all the makings for a perfect evening were there. Only one thing was missing. Piping hot samosas and jalebis!
If you're thinking that we prepared them to make our evening perfect, well, you're wrong. One, its too much oil. And two, we don't know how to make them :) The presence of the chatwala outside the house, who we consciously avoid, was not helping the situation much. So we decided to take the matter into our hands and make some chat ourselves. Pretty simple and tastes great.
What you need:
A packet of bingo mad angles ( or any such flat chips)
And no. The recipe doesn't end here. ;)
1 Onion finely chopped
1 carrot grated
1 tomato finely chopped
1 potato- salted and mashed
A cup of curd
Tamarind chutney

And how is it made? Gets made in a jiffy if you have the stuff ready.
Mix all the chopped veggies. Add salt and chilli powder to them. Then some chat masala to taste.
Now take each chip and place a bit of the potato mixture. Then a spoonful of the vegetable mix. Top it with some curd and tamarind chutney. Add a dash of chat masala. It is ready to be popped into your mouth! Yum!
We did not have mint at home today. Some mint would have added to the taste for sure! And we haven't called the recipe anything yet.
