One thing that I most definitely miss about my country, India, is its lip-smacking street food also called “chaat”. What a delicious, mouth-watering delight.
The Association of Indian Students at USC did help get over the craving for chaat by organizing a food night that featured some of the tastiest Indian street food. There was the flavorful “paav-bhaji”, a palatable “paapdi chaat” and the all-time favorite, “pani-puri”.
Paav bhaji is a vegetable curry made with butter and served with soft bread. Paapdi chaat is made with crisp fried dough wafers, something like tortilla chips and is served with a mixture of boiled potatoes, yogurt, spices and sweet and spicy chutneys. Pani puri is a fried hollow pastry ball, which needs to be filled with a mixture of boiled potatoes, spices and flavored water before being eaten.
The combo for all the three items was only $7 for AIS members and $10 for non-members. I enjoyed everything on the menu and it was totally worth it.
