Ingredients

Ingredients For Bread Basket:

  • 6 slices bread
  • 4 tablespoon cooking oil or ghee

Ingredients For Aloo Chaat Stuffing:

  • 1 Cup boiled potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 Cup boiled white peas (safed matar)
  • 1/4 Cup chopped onion
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder (jeera powder)
  • 1 teaspoon chaat masala
  • 1/4 Cup pomegranate (anar)

Other Ingredients:

  • 1/4 Cup curd or yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup mint chutney see recipe
  • 1/4 Cup sweet chutney
  • 1/4 Cup sev bhujia (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander leaves

Instructions

Make Bread Basket:

  • Remove the crust from the bread slices. Place a single slice of bread on a clean, dry surface and press them thinly using a rolling pin. The idea is to reduce the thickness of bread slices and make them easy to shape. (refer recipe video)
  • Make half inch cuts on all four sides of the bread. Brush bread slices with oil on both sides.
  • Arrange the bread slices into the muffin molds like a cup. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C (400°f) for 15 minutes in the middle rack or till the bread is crisp.
  • Unmold the bread baskets and allow them to cool at room temperature. Set aside.

Make Aloo Chaat Stuffing:

  • Combine boiled peas, potato, onion, salt, spices, and pomegranate in a bowl. Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly. Make it spicier using green chili if you prefer.

Assemble Bread Basket Chaat:

  • Fill each bread basket with a tablespoon of aloo chaat stuffing. Top the aloo chaat with a tablespoon of curd, one teaspoon each of sweet and mint chutney. Sprinkle sev and fresh coriander.
  • Serve Bread Basket Chaat immediately.

Notes

  • You can store baked bread baskets for 2 - 3 days at room temperature in an airtight container. 
  • Use fresh and moist bread slices for making the bread baskets. 
  • You can brush the bread slices with a tablespoon of melted butter or ghee to get a nice brown crust and taste. 
  • Store aloo chaat stuffing for 2 - 3 days in the refrigerator. 
  • For chaat, whisk yogurt nicely to get smooth, lump free consistency. 
  • If sweet chutney is not available, add a tablespoon of sugar in the curd while whisking to get a sweet taste. 
  • After filling, serve bread basket chaat immediately else it will turn soggy after a few minutes.
