Tortilla Scoops Shev Puri
Regular readers might have noticed how I keep including local American vegetables, spices, cheese in our everyday Indian cooking.... any ingredient which is readily available.  You might have read my previous posts about Ricotta Cheese MithaiMexican Corn Tortilla Chips is also one of the ingredients I love. 
This time its a variation of Mumbai Street Food - Shev Puri, Dahi Puri a.k.a Dahi Papdi Chat.  If you love desi chaat, you must give it a try. These crunchy tortilla chips add a nice corn twist to popular Indian street food.

Ingredients:
Tortilla Scoops
Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 medium
Potato (Boiled) - 1 medium
Cilantro/Coriander/Dhania Leaves - few sprigs
Yellow Peas (Dry) - 1/2 cup
Turmeric/Haldi - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Mint Chutney/Teekhi Chutney
Dates Tamarind Chutney/Meethi Chutney
Curds/Yogurt/Dahi

How to make Shev Puri and Dahi Batata Puri with Tortilla Scoops:
  • Soak yellow peas in water for about 2 hours.  Cook the soaked peas in about 3 cups water until soft.  Add salt, turmeric and asafoetida and bring it to a boil.  You can skip this or instead of peas, you can use mung bean sprouts or moth bean (matki or motu) sprouts as well.
  • Finely chop onions.  Peel the potato skin and dice it into small pieces.  Discard the tomato seeds and finely chop it.  Finely chop coriander leaves.
  • You can add finely chopped raw mango, pomegranate arils as well.
