Papri Chaat is, in my opinion, the king of chaats. Just the sight of it makes me happy. And honestly, what's not to love? Chickpeas and potatoes drenched in spicy chutneys and a cooling yogurt sauce, topped with freshly ground cumin and crunchy papad. Sigh... (This can easily be made vegan by subbing the yogurt for a vegan option!)
I love hummus for many reasons, but mostly for how versatile it is. I use it in pita pockets, sandwiches, as a dip, as a side, I even add it to my dressing sometimes. The mellow chickpeas are beautifully balance by bold olive oil, bitter tahini and bright lemon juice. That pinch of cayenne goes a long way, and you'll miss it if you forget to add it. All in all, this is one recipe you should definitely have in your repertoire. One thing I hate, and I must insist you start hating too, is a lumpy hummus. If it isn't smooth and creamy, it's not hummus!
