Canapes Chaat Recipe: A healthily yet delicious recipe of chaat made from protein rich sprouts.
There are few vegetarian ingredients which are quite rich in protein. Sprots are good in protein and hence included in ones diet. Usually childrens don’t like sprouted pulses on their own. So we make sprout salads or sprout chaat.
I have given a small twist to usual sprout chaat recipe. Instead of serving green sprouts like salad we will top it up on healthy baked canapes and serve them as a bite size serving. This dish can be served during get togthers, kitty parties and birthday parties as welcome snacks. Childrens and grown ups would love this simple healthy chaat dish.
The recipe is quite straightforward. All the ingredients are easy to collect and get assembled in no time. Even children can make this chaat recipe. If you ignore boiling of sprouts then this is a no bake no cook recipe of cooking without fire recipe. You can use this recipe to make starters for cooking without fire compitetion.
Few tips for Canapes chaat:
- Always prepare the filling just before serving.
- Fill the canapes before serving or else camapes will become soft and soggy.
- If you don’t have the canapes you can use this filling on salt biscuit or roasted bread.

Making canapes chaat is very simple once we get all ingredients ready. For this chaat I have used canapes cups readily available in market. Check your grocery store and see if you have similar once there. Also I have used green moong spouts, black chana sprouts, onion, tomatoes, green chutney, tamarind chutney, chaat masala and some red chili powder/salt.
