Vrat ke papdi chaat recipe navratri recipesYou must be wondergin what’s vrat ke papdi chaat?  Well, it’s same like normal papdi chaat recipe with minor changes to suit vrat ie fasting rules like instead of plain flour used here is Rajgeera Atta, no garlic, onion and aloo sev replaces normal sev.  It doesn’t really looks very appealing like papdi chaat because it’s very simple with less ingredients but neither the less it taste delicious.

During Upwas/fasting it’s going to be feast,  I just got the idea to make papdi chaat suitable for vrat during one of my chaat section with my colleague and she was saying fasting days nothing interesting to eat.  Not only for vrat you can make this any time and enjoy this different and yummy papdi chaat.
