Katori Chat - Using Baked Katori

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Friday, December 26, 2014

Today i was supposed to post a Broccoli and cheese tikki, a baked version of-course. But it ended up like something different, though it tasted finger-licking yum, i couldn't put it as chat!!!My mind started thinking fast, as it is getting dark, if at all i m making something, i have to get it done in another 30 minutes. I had some leftover papdi  dough in the refrigerator, i immediately made these katori's and filled with toppings i had in hand. The chat came out good. My better half felt  that it needed little more spice, so i have adjusted the recipe accordingly by adding little chili powder. But, at the end i feel Chat taste and preference varies from person to person. So, adjust the seasonings accordingly.

Ingredients (Makes 20 Katori's)
1/2 Cup Whole Wheat flour
1/2 Cup All Purpose flour
1/2 tsp cumin/jeera seeds
1/2 tsp white sesame seeds
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp oil
1/4 cup warm water

  • Take both the flours, sesame,cumin seeds and salt in a large bowl. Whisk well to combine. 
  • Add oil to the flour mix and rub well on to the flour mix to resemble crumbs. Now slowly add water to this and knead a soft dough. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 2 portions. Grease your tart pan and keep it ready. Roll out each portion into 20cm(diameter) circle. Prick the dough all over and use a cookie cutter or bottle lid to cut out the dough to fit the tart mould.  I used 200gms Nutella bottle lid to cut out the dough. 
  • Preheat the Oven to 220C.  Lay the cut rounds of dough on a greased tart mould. Press the dough well to the  tart base so it takes the mould shape. 
  • Bake the katori for 11 minutes. Take it off the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack. Store the Katori's in an air-tight container until use.
For the Chat
1/4 Cup Boiled Chana/garbanzo beans
1/4 Cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup chopped onion
1  small tomato or  2 cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup hung curd
2 tbsp sweet chutney
chat masala to taste
red chili powder to taste
juice of half lemon
1/4 cup Boondi
  • Mix together chana, cucumber and onion, 2 pinches of chat masala, 2 pinches of red chili powder and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Place the baked katori on a plate, fill with 2-3 tbsp of chana-onion and cucumber mix. 
  • Add sweet chutney, hung curd and top it with boondi. Sprinkle a generous pinch of chaat masala. Enjoy!!
