Book Review: Chai, Chaat & Chutney

Unique and delicious Indian street food straight from the source.

Cookbook author Chetna Makan has traveled to the four corners of India-Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Delhi- sampling the varieties of Indian street food. Her new book Chai, Chaat & Chutney: A Street Food Journey Through India draws inspiration from her travels.

The recipes are simple to cook at home and the photographs seem to leap off the pages. In Chai, Chaat & Chutney, Makan describes the vast differences in street food preparation and taste based on the city.

In Chennai, the food is subtle, balanced, and delicious. Try cooking the Corn Chaat, which balances well when eaten with the sourness of Chaat Masala. In Kolkata, sample the Chana Dal with Luchi.
