Snapshots: For Those About to Chaat…
For people who are used to chicken tikka masala, biriyani and tandoori, ordering “chaat” (the word used to describe small plates of snacks) can be a little more confusing. To make ordering it a little less intimidating, check out these photos The Flooz (who blogs about Astoria on Joey in Astoria) posted to the Midtown Lunch Flickr Pool, from Indus Express, the fairly new Indian steam table/kati roll place on 48th btw. 5+6th.
The “Somosa” (sic) Chaat – Crisp turnovers, tangy chick peas, yogurt & mint chutney. $4.95
Papri Chaat – Homemade chips, lentil dumplings, garbanzo beans, potatoes, yogurt, chutneys & spices. $4.95
From The Flooz: “The Papri Chaat deliciousness. For $4.95 you get this huge portion that is good for at least one lunch and a snack. I bought a naan to help with scoopage and i was ready to burst!”
