Banarasi Chaat

When in Varanasi, don’t miss to tantalize your taste buds with city special chaat. The chaat here offers a range of variations. The special Tamatar Chaat is the most famous one, which consists of aloo (potato), tamatar (tomato), topped with chopped onions, and infused with a mix of spices. Another one is Chooda matar or Chiwda matar, a Banarasi version of poha. It is a concoction of fresh green peas, flattened rice and other cereals. It is best served during winters and taken up well by some street food joints in Varanasi.
