Ingredients
First Layer:
  • 2 cups graham crackers , crushed
  • 1 cup condensed milk
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup milk , room temperature, as needed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp butter , melted
Second Layer:
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
Garnishing:
  • dried strawberries
  • saffron
  • edible lavender buds
  • pistachio , chopped
  • dried mangoes , cut into strips
  • edible marigold flowers
  • pinch sea salt
Instructions
  1. Mix together the crushed graham crackers, salt, condensed milk, and cocoa powder. Once incorporated, add in the milk and butter. Mix together to create a dough.
  2. Line an 8x8 dish with parchment paper and spread this chocolate mixture into a thin layer. If you’re finding it difficult to work with the dough, it might be easier to roll it out using a rolling pin and then putting it into the dish, using your fingers to fill any gaps. Cover it and keep it aside while we prepare the second layer.

  3. For the white chocolate layer, melt the chocolate using the residual heat of a double boiler. Alternatively, you can microwave the chocolate in 30 second intervals until fully melted. Either way, make sure not to overheat the chocolate as it often dries out and begins to harden.

  4. Once melted, quickly transfer the while chocolate to the same lined dish as before and spread into a thin layer on top of the chocolate dough from before.

  5. Decorate the top liberally with the garnishes. Sprinkle sea salt on top.

  6. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge before cutting and serving.

Recipe Notes
  • These can last about a week in the fridge and are great made in advance for parties or events!

  • 1/2 cup paneer , or tofu
  • 1 medium onions , finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh tomato puree
  • 3 tbsp yogurt
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp almond flour , or paste of 8-10 soaked almonds
  • 1/2 tsp all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tsp kasoori methi
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • pinch turmeric powder
  • 8 strands saffron , soaked in milk
  • 1/2 tsp rose water

  • 2 tsp green chilies , minced
  • 1 tsp garlic , minced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp ghee , or butter
  • 1 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp water
  • salt  to taste
Instructions
Instant Pot:
  1. Turn on saute mode in the Instant Pot and add in the oil. Heat the oil for one minute and in the garlic, green chili, and ginger. Saute it for a few seconds and then toss in the onions and bay leaves, cooking until translucent.

  2. Pour in the fresh tomato puree and immediately turn off the saute mode because we will be adding yogurt in soon and we don't want it to split. In a small bowl mix together the 2 tbsp of water, almond flour (or paste), all purpose flour, and yogurt to make a paste. Add this in paste or mixture and stir the mixture. Once combined turn on the saute mode.

  3. Add the butter, turmeric, kasoori methi, salt, green beans, carrots, and water. Put the lid on and pressure cook for 2 minutes on high in manual mode and then quick release it.

  4. Turn on saute mode again and add peas, corn, peppers, paneer, pineapple, all of the spices, saffron (soaked in milk), milk, and cream. Mix them together, add in the rose water and then turn off saute mode and take it out in a bowl. Don't over saute, otherwise the vegetables will lose their color. The Mixed Vegetables are ready!

Stove Top:
  1. Cook it in a heavy-bottom saucepan and instead of pressure cooking, just cover it and cook it until the vegetables are al-dente (soft but still have a bite).

Recipe Notes
  1. If the gravy seems to be too runny after you're done, don't worry because the cream and almond powder (or paste) will thicken it over time.

Ingredients
Sabudana Layer:
  • 1 cup sago (sabudana or tapioca pearls)
  • 3/4 cup roasted peanuts , coarsely ground
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 4 curry leaves
  • 2 tsp green chilies
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp rose water
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • salt  to taste or use sendha namak for fast
Potato Layer:
  • 2 cup potatoes , finely diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ghee
  • pinch turmeric powder
  • black pepper  to taste
  • salt  to taste or use sendha namak for fast
Dates Layer:
  • 8-10 dates , finely chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • salt  to taste or use sendha namak for fast
Others:
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chutney
  • 10 strands saffron , soaked in 1 tsp water
  • almonds , finely chopped
  • pistachio
Instructions
  1. Rinse sabudana pearls in cold water, 3-4 times till the water is clear and all starch is rinsed off. Soak them in a wide bowl for 3 to 4 hours, with enough water to just cover them. They will absorb water and double in size. Press them and check that they are not hard from inside. Now drain them completely and spread them on a kitchen towel till they are totally dry.
  2. Heat ghee in a pan, add cumin seeds and curry leaves, and let them splutter. Add green chili and sauté for a minute. Then add sabudana, crushed peanut, sugar, black pepper, salt, lemon juice and cilantro leaves. Mix every thing well. When the sabudana pearls loose their opaqueness and start becoming translucent, they are cooked . It should not take more then 2-3 minutes. Be careful, as over cooking can make them sticky and lumpy. Now, switch off the flame, add in the rose water, and leave the pan covered for 2-3 minutes and then take it out in a bowl.

  3. For the potato layer, heat ghee in a pan. Add boiled potatoes and sauté on medium flame till they are golden brown in color and are crispy. Then add salt, lemon juice and cilantro. Take it out in a bowl.
  4. Now, let’s set the chaat in cups. In the base, add the chopped dates with salt and lemon to emulate a tamarind chutney. Then layer it with the potatoes, followed by the cilantro chutney, and finally the sabudana. Sprinkle it with the saffron water and garnish it with almonds and pistachio.

Recipe Notes
  • There are so many varieties of sabudana available, which need to be soaked for different times, anywhere from 2 hours to overnight. So, you might need to experiment with the sabudana.
  • Try to use thicker variety of sabudana pearls, as they will not stick together. You can also toss them with 1 tsp ghee before cooking to avoid sticking or coat them with some peanut powder to absorb the moisture.
    Make sure sabudana pearls are completely dry by spreading them on a kitchen towel.
  • Use enough ghee for cooking, otherwise sabudana pearls will stick together due to lack of grease.
  • Air Fryer Potato Layer – You can also air fry the potatoes, instead of pan roasting them. Just mix potatoes with 1 tbsp ghee and salt and air fry on 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes (time may vary). When done, add lemon juice and cilantro.

Instructions
Muradabadi Dal:
  1. Rinse and soak the yellow moong dal in the water for at least an hour and discard the water once ready. Add the dal into a pressure cooker and add double the amount of water that there is dal.

  2. Add salt, turmeric, and ghee and put the lid on. Let it cook on medium heat until one whistle and then lower the gas and let it cook for one more whistle. Let it release naturally and open the lid. Whisk the dal to mash any lentils that might still be whole. The dal is ready!
  3. If you want to use Instant Pot, then in step 1, pressure cook the soaked dal with the same amount of water on high for 5 minutes with natural release.

Muradabadi Dal Masala:
  1. Lightly roast and grind all the ingredients using a mortar and pestle, or a grinder.

Mint-Garlic Cilantro Chutney:
  1. Coarsely grind all the chutney ingredients and adjust seasoning when done.

Assemble the Chaat:
  1. When it’s time to serve the dish, heat the dal to a boil. In a serving bowl, crush papdi and ladle in the warmer dal. Add a little bit of every topping on top and the dish is ready to serve! Butter and muradabadi dal masala are key ingredients so definitely don’t skimp on them!

Recipe Notes
  • The dal is best served in individual bowls and piping hot if it’s an appetizer
  • It can also be a main course dish, if you serve it with naan or kulcha. Just omit the papdi because there will likely be another source of crunch!
  • Butter and muradabadi dal masala are key ingredients, so definitely don’t skimp on them!

Instant Pot:

  3. Add peas and carrots and sauté for a minute. Drain your rice and put it in the instant pot.
