This is my Husband's recipe and he always says a big story about this snack that he enjoyed during his school days. He also says that the name of this snack is Thattuvada.. Which i never heard of. So i named it Thattai Delight! Do anybody know about this?

  • Thattai - about 20
  • Beetroot - 1/4 cup, shredded
  • Carrot -1/4 cup, shredded
  • Onion - 1/4 cup, shredded
  • Cilantro - few, chopped
  • Salt - to taste
  • Coconut oil - 1 tsp
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Amchur powder - 1/4 tsp
For chutney
  • Mint- few leaves
  • Cilantro - few
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Dates - 3 or 4, seedless
  • Salt - a pinch
How to make it:

Both home-made thattai as well as store bought thattai can be used for making this evening snack. You can find the recipe for thattai here. Arrange thattai in a plate. In a bowl, mix onions, beetroot and carrot. Add salt, chilli powder and amchur powder. Add coconut oil and cilantro and mix well. Make thick mint chutney and keep it ready in a separate bowl. Take a tbsp of veggies and place it over the thattai. Do it for all the thattais. Add a little of mint chutney on top of it and cover it with another thattai. Take a bite and see how the plate goes empty in front of your eyes.... Enjoy!

Update: Thank you Lata Ji for telling me about "His cooking Event" by Priti. I'm sending this recipe to her right away... :)

    Never heard of thattuvadai. Looks We can also name it 'Indian Nachos with veggies'.

  4. They sound great !!! I do not know if there is another name of it. For me, is it totally new. I checked "Thattai recipe "and they look close to papdi (used in papdi chat), but instead made of rice/urad dal flour, so got to be very very tasty. Have to try it out :)

  5. Hey Anu...they look like sev puri to me...a healthier version of course...never heard of thathai...may be a different kind of puri..i guess.
    Whatever it may be recipe is good.
