Biscuits are the best compliment to an evening tea or coffee. Biscuit chat will just add spice to the evening tea. Simple and filling, it is another of those 5 mins recipes that we make.
Preparation time: 10 mins
Salt biscuits 12
Cheese flakes 12
Mashed potato (aloo) ½ cup
Grated tomatoes ½ cup
Finely chopped onion (ullipaya) ½ cup
Chat masala 2 tsp
Pinch of Red chilli powder
Pinch of sugar
Pinch of Salt
Finely copped coriander
Lemon juice 2 tsps
Boil and mash the potato. Grate the tomatoes or chop them finely. Finely chop the onions too. Cut the cheese into small flakes, enough to fit onto the salt biscuits.(grated cheese can also be used)
Mix the mashed potato, grated tomato and finely chopped onion in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and a pinch of red chilli powder and mix again. Also add 2tsps of chat masala and a pinch of sugar (optional if a sweet taste is preferred with the tea) and mix well.
Place the salt biscuits in the serving plate. Keep the cheese flakes( or a small ball of grated cheese) on them. Top it with the mashed potato mixture.
Garnish each biscuit with fresh and chopped coriander. Sprinkle lime juice on each biscuit before serving (optional, generally not advisable if the biscuit chat is made as a snack with coffee)
As suggested biscuit chat goes well with evening tea or coffee. Children will also love the different way of eating biscuits.
