What is Chaat?

Chaat, a popular Indian street food, is known for its unique blend of flavors and textures. Traditionally, chaats are made with some sort of puri or fried ingredients, creating a crispy base topped with various toppings. However, this Masala Corn Chaat deviates from the norm by skipping the chutneys and focusing on vegetables as the main ingredient.
