Dahi Idli Chaat Recipe
If you love Idlis & Chaat then this recipe is a must try. Soft spongy Idlis dunked in yogurt & chaat chutneys, refreshing and healthy chaat with a south Indian touch of idlis & Idli Milagai Podi. This Dahi Idli Chaat is one of the easiest chaat recipe and can be prepared in no time if you chaat chutneys ready in hand along with some left over idlis or mini idlis.

I love yogurt & Idli combo a lot and I have already shared my most Favorite Thayir Idli Recipe , a low calorie & low fat alternative for Thayir Vadai. This time tried the same with Chaat Chutneys and enjoyed it to the core. I tried Idli chaat with Papdis & Without Papdis. Dahi Idli Papdi Chaat platter for my kids and for me simple idli, podi, sweet & spicy yogurt & Chaat Chutneys. Either ways its a treat, next time if you make idlis please try this chaat and treat yourself & your family.

idli chaat without papdis
Do not use hot idlis to make dahi chaat. Use it when the idlis are completely cooled or use left over idlis.
If you was you can toast the idlis in tawa with oil and idli podi and use it to make chaat.
I liked it this way without oil and toasting.
If you wan you can also add some finely grated carrot, finely chopped onion & cilantro for even more colorful and filling chaat.
Adding salt & sugar to the curd/yogurt gives mild sweet & good taste to curd.
Idli Milagai podi pairs so well with yogurt & chaat chutneys but if you don't have it in and skip it.
You can refrigerate the chaat, and serve chilled. IF so, add papdis and sev just before serving.
