Healthy Whole Wheat Cracker Chaat Bites


I have yet to meet a person who does not love '#chaat'. It is an immensely popular street item India. Like most of you, Chaat is totally my weak point.  I can munch on it endlessly day after day :)

But the typical chaat items are loaded with empty unhealthy calories. So I created this simple and easy to throw together but totally healthy and tasty chaat item to satisfy everyone's chaat cravings in a jiffy. Best part is you do not even have to make any chutney for this - that easy breezy.

It makes for a great appetizer/snack for potluck and parties too. 

Superbowl is coming up soon, makes for great occasion to try it out :)

So here is the recipe:

Ingredients: Ritz or any other brand whole wheat crackers 8-10, chopped onion - 1/2, chopped cucumber - 1/2, chopped tomato - 1/2, cilantro chopped - 3-4 tbsp, chaat masala - 1/2 tsp, paprika/red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp, cheese - 1 cheese single cut into 8-10 parts, Siracha hot sauce - as needed, Sev (Indian sev) for garnish.

Assembly: Take a plate and arrange crackers and sliced cheese pieces on top of it. In another bowl, mix all the chopped veggies, chaat masala and paprika/red chilli powder. Do not add salt. The chaat masala, cheese and the cracker already have enough salt. Spoon the mixture on top of the crackers and cheese. Add a drop or two of #Siracha. Garnish with Sev.

Serve immediately. The chaat bite just bursts into a medley of sweet, savory, tangy, pungent, spicy flavors in your mouth and you are instantly transported to taste heaven. Enjoy!!!

Till my next post, take care everyone.
