India House: Quick Chat on Chaat
|Looks like rice krispies, but oh, the taste!|
|Salty, spicy, sweet, sour - chaat has somethng for everyone.|
The lunch buffet ($8.95 weekdays, $10.95 weekends, 11:30am-3pm) at India House in Plantation includes a chaat bar, where you can try different types of chaat such as bhel poori (a spicy puffed rice snack), papdi chat (made with crisps, potatoes, chopped onions, fresh cilantro, yogurt, and a sweet and sour tamarind sauce.), or dhali aloo poori (made with potatoes, chickpeas and chat masala, an intricate spice blend.) The chaat is also available on the regular dinner menu.
Try some; it's like a dance in your mouth. Let's just say there's a lot going on. Be warned though, once you try Indian snacks, you may not be able to go back to your basic potato chips.
