Today is Friday, and we are feeling creative, and when we feel that way, we try creating something awesome.
Just like we did few weeks ago, with the Fence Basket Chaat. And people appreciated a lot, it was an instant hit.
So, tried putting the awesomeness of the Chaat in a different shape, this time, it’s a Boat, and we shall call it, The Boat Chaat.
And boy, this is super crispy, super delicious and looks mouth-watering. I wish there was a technology that would let you taste this creation.
The Good news is, we post easy step by step tutorials for all the things so that you can cook/prepare them at home with ease.
Please make time for this one and prepare it for the ones you love and care. Enjoy.
Preparation Time: 15-20 Minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 Minutes
Serving: 5 Boat chaat
Ingredients for Boats:
|All purpose flour||1 cup|
|Nigella seeds (मनगरेला)||1/2 teaspoon|
|Vegetable oil||2 tbsp plus for frying the boats|
|Baking Powder||1/4 teaspoon|
Ingredients for Stuffing:
|Potato, boiled, peeled and mashed||1 cup|
|Red chilly flakes||1/2 teaspoon|
|Chaat masala||1/2 teaspoon|
|Tamarind Chutney||5 tbsp|
|Beaten curd||5 tbsp|
|Coriander leaves, chopped||2 tbsp|
|Onion, chopped||2 tbsp|
|Green chili, chopped||1|
1. In a broad bowl, add flour, nigella seeds (मनगरेला), salt, baking powder and 2 tbsp vegetable oil. Rub the flour with hands. Add water and knead the flour well to make the tight dough.
2. Cover it with the wet muslin cloth and keep it aside for 15-20 minutes.
3. Take a Lemon size ball from the dough and roll it into a circle of 4-5 inches in diameter.
I had a cookies cutter with me so I squeezed it a little to get the boat shape.
4. Prick the rolled dough with the fork, so it won’t puff while frying the boats. Apply water to the corners of the rolled dough.
Now I’ve put the cookie cutter on the pricked dough and used it to give the dough the shape of a boat.
5. Heat the wok/kadai with oil and deep fry it on a low flame till it is light golden and crisp. Keep turning the boats, so the boats are evenly fried from all the sides.
6. Take the lemon size ball from the dough and roll it into a circle of 4-5 inches in diameter. Prick it with the fork and cut it into sail shape as shown below in the image.
7. Fry the Boat Sail and Boat on a low flame till light golden and crisp in the color from all the sides.
8. Take out the boat shaper (the cookie cutter) from the Kadai. Then take out the Boat as well after some time.
9. Take out the fried boat on a tissue paper to get rid of the extra oil. Heat the wok or pan with 1 tbsp oil.
10. Take the mashed potato and make a cylindrical shape tikki. Fry the tikkis on a medium flame till brown spots appear from both the sides.
11. Keep all the ingredients ready for stuffing the boats.
12. Take the fried boat on a serving plate. Put one Tikki in the center of the boat and stick the Boat Sail to one sides of the Boat.
13. Sprinkle chaat masala, red chilly flakes and salt. Garnish with coriander leaves, chopped onion and green chilly. Pour tamarind chutney and beaten curd. Garnish with sev. Delicious boat chaat is ready to serve.
