Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat from Haridwar is a popular Chaat available on the streets of Haridwar. This chaat has a sinful snack dipped in sweet curd, topped with chutneys.
When I was working on the street food available in Haridwar, I had shortlisted this Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat from Jain Chaat Bhandar, a popular shop in Haridwar. I made this along with other street food for the Haridwar Street Food.
I saw these dishes as shared on the youtube video. The chaat shop has been since 1951 and is famous for its Kanji Vada. Along with these, the Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat is also very popular. Based on what the Chaat wala said on the video, I went ahead making it. I skipped making the Bada/ Vada that is also served along with it. Simply because I forgot about making it.

Making of Papdis
In a bowl, take the flour along with ghee and cumin seeds.
Mix well and slowly add warm water to flour and knead to a stiff dough.
Divide the dough into 4 to 5 balls. Dust well and roll out into 6inch discs
Heat a kadai with oil and when the oil is hot, deep fry the discs on low flame until crispy.
Drain to a kitchen towel.
Assembling the Chaat
Have all the chutneys ready.
When ready to assemble, take the serving bowl, dip the papdi into sweet curds, or pour curds over it. Next, add pudina chutney.
Over this add Imli sonth chutney, kala namak and chaat masala.
You can finish this off by repeating the process.
Typically in the chaat shop, they also serve a Vada served in the same process. However, I skipped adding the vada to this chaatO
This Papdi Bada Dahi Chaat is part of the Haridwar Street Food for starters. Along with this, I also made Chotu ki Pakode. For main, it was Haridwar wali Kachori along with four different side dishes. We use chutneys like Sonth flavoured Imli chutney, Pudina chutney. For sweet it was a typical thickened Milk in Kullars.
