Papri Chaat is the king of chaats. Just the sight of it makes me happy. And honestly, what's not to love? Chickpeas and potatoes are drenched in spicy chutneys and a cooling yogurt sauce. Everything is topped with freshly ground cumin and crunchy papad(papar?). I'm a purist when it comes to papri chaat. If you follow a few simple steps you can get amazing papri chaat at home. In fact, it's better than takeout. I can't tell you how many times I've ordered papri chaat from Indian/ Pakistani restaurants only to be disappointed. I've added some recipes notes to get you the perfect results every time.
I take my hummus very seriously. I may be a Pakistani but I grew up in Michigan, surrounded by delicious and authentic Mediteranean food. I can spot a fake and lumpy hummus full of unwelcome ingredients from a mile away. I keep mine simple, to the point, and delicious, as it should be. It's beautifully balanced with nutty notes from the tahini, a fresh zing from the lemon juice and a subtle bitterness from the olive oil and garlic. You take one bite and you know you're eating the real thing.
