WATCH HOW TO MAKE BAKED BEANS LAYER CHAAT:
For our baked bean layer, we’ll sauté peppers, the beans, and some Italian spices. For our masala aloo layer, sauté ginger-chili paste with corn, potatoes, some simple Indian masalas, and cilantro.
The base of our chaat will be a layer of bread so we’ll cut out circles using a cookie cutter. We’ll also whisk together this kasundi mustard yogurt for a little Bengali flair and a kachumber inspired salad with some veggies, spices, and basil to add that freshness.
To assemble, add a layer of kasundi yogurt, the bread, some more yogurt, masala aloo, green chutney, our salad, the baked beans, and garnish with cheese , masala boondi and chaat masala! Enjoy!
