Kulle ki Chaat.

Kulle ki Chaat literally translates to chaat in a kulhar/ earthen pot. It is an Old Delhi speciality and is probably one of the few Indian Chaat recipes that is without any of the ingredients being fried.

It is a delicious blend of fruits and vegetables that come loaded with flavourful spices. The instant burst of flavours in this chaat is something which makes this chaat an interesting one!
