  • Season with all spices. Garnish with sev, boondi, shredded carrot and coriander.
  • Our jars are ready to serve.


  • The jars look very trendy and I like to serve them for small gatherings. For bigger parties, I use a platter.
  • Greek yoghurt is thick and creamy, it stays stable in jars without leaving the moisture. For a platter, I use thick yoghurt, but dilute it with milk.
  • Add a pinch of sugar, it will enhance the taste.
  • Use different seasonings between layers, this way there is a balance in taste.
  • The Black Chickpeas can be substituted by White Chickpeas.
  • I vary the garnish according to availability and season. Grated Beetroot, Pomegranate Pearls, Grated Ginger, Green Chillies make an excellent garnish.
  • Any crunchy farsaan is a good substitute for Sev and Boondi.
  • Serve the jars along with an extra bowl of yoghurt, some chutneys and spices.
  • Make it a DIY Chaat Party. Let your guest assemble their jars and have fun.
