Dahi Bhalle is one of my favorite chaats. Soft bhallas with smooth dahi/curd and chutneys are a match made in heaven. But I would often see Bhalla Papdi chaat being served in parties and marriage buffet spreads, but never tried this at home. But after my dad got posted in Bhatinda, mom saw a lot of friends make it and she started making it. And when I tasted this at home, I became a fan and started making Bhalla Papdi Chaat at home. This is loaded and full of even more goodness and is absolutely amazing. It combines the softness of Bhallas and the crunchiness of the Papdi.
