Dahi puri is a crispy and saucy Indian street food snack. It's made by filling a crispy semolina ball with a chickpea and potato filling and drizzling it with a combo of sweet dahi (yogurt) and tamarind-date and cilantro-mint chutneys.




  1. In a medium bowl add potatoes and drained chickpeas. Use a spoon to incorporate potatoes and chickpeas while lightly mashing the chickpeas. 
  2. Add diced onions, chaat masala, Kashmiri chili powder, and salt and mix until all the ingredients are distributed evenly. Taste filling for seasoning and add more salt to taste
  3. Lightly tap a small hole on the top of the puri with your index finger. Gently fill ~2-3 teaspoons of potato/chickpea filling in each puri. 
  4. Place about 6 puris on a plate. Drizzle ~1/4 cup of dahi per plate, along with ~2 tablespoons of tamarind-date chutney, and ~1 tablespoon of cilantro-mint chutney. Sprinkle the top with sev and eat immediately.


  • Add the sauces to the dahi puri right before eating.
