"Food for me was a connecting link to my grandmother, to my childhood, to my past. And what I found out is that for everybody, food is a connector to their roots, to their past in different ways. It gives you security; it gives you a profile of who you are, where you come from." - Lidia Matticchio Bastianich
This is one of the most homely chaat. You can use any crackers of your choice but I used Monaco - the salty crackers from my childhood in India. My aunt used to make many different chaats. This was the variation from usual sev-batata-puri. Sometimes she used bread croutons to make bread sev puri or sometimes she used to come up with monaco crackers as the base for puris.
1. Assemble the crackers on a serving platter.
2. Just before serving, place potatoes, onions, chutneys, sev, cilantro and lemon juice/amchoor powder with chaat masala.
3. Serve immediately before they get soggy.
