Churmur

Hello my dear friends and fellows! Welcome back to my space Dish of Delight once again!

Chaats are all time favourite evening snacks of many of us. In my early post I have shared the recipe for Aloo Kabli which is a popular chaat sold by the street side chaat selling vendors in Bengal. Today I am sharing the recipe for Churmur which is another aloo chaat quite similar to that of Aloo Kabli with a slight difference.

So, let’s take a look at the recipe for Churmur.

Ingredients

Potatoes 2 medium sized, cooked and cut into thin small dices

Onion 1 medium sized, sliced

Green chilli 2 or 3, chopped

Cucumber 1/2 of a small sized, chopped

Dried yellow peas 1/4 of a small cup, soaked for about 4 hours

Bengal gram 1/4 of a small cup, soaked for about 4 hours

Panipuri shells about 20 to 25

Dry red chilli whole 3

Cumin seeds 2 tsp

Black salt as per taste

Chaat masala 1 tsp

Tamarind water 1/4 of a small cup

Procedure

  • Pressure cook the yellow peas and Bengal gram with a little bit of salt and a cup of water to one whistle at maximum flames and then release pressure. Strain out the water and keep the cooked peas aside
  • Dry roast the whole dry red chilli and cumin seeds and then grind them to a powder.
  • In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except the panipuri shells, and mix well
  • Finally break and add the panipuri shells and again mix well
  • Churmur is ready to be served. Add a little more tamarind water if you like and enjoy.
