Katori Chaat - American Desi way

I have subscribed to Tarla Dalal's recipe emails which I get weekly in my inbox. A fortnight or so ago, I saw "chaat" special email. I browsed through it and found Katori chaat rather interesting. But instead of deep frying katoris to hold the chaat, I decided to use baked Tostitos scoops. I decided to make two garnishes - one with sweetened yogurt and the other with sev.
