Surati collegian chaat reicpe or collegian singdana with step by step pictures – A lip smacking street food chaat recipe famous in schools and colleges of Surat and other South Gujarat town.
Here is a flavorful street food recipe that is not very well known in India. The popular dishes famous on streets like pani puri, sev puri, ragda patties etc are available in almost all the corners of India. However this humble chaat recipe is hardly known in other regions. But this peanut chaat recipe is very popular in streets of Surat, Gujarat.
Almost all the schools and colleges nearby have a “singdana wala” – a vendor selling all different roasted peanut, chana dana (roasted gram), roasted peas etc. Such vendor is usually selling this “collegian chaat”. The chaat wala will quickly assemble this chaat by mixing finely chopped tomatoes, onion and roasted peanuts. He would garnish the chaat with sev and fresh coriander. It’s very easy recipe yet very tasty. The tastemaker in this chaat is the green chutney. Green chutney made from fresh coriander, peanut and lemon juice. I have shared the recipe of green chutney here.
This recipe of chaat is very simple and hence its a “no cook” recipe. Even kids can make this chaat. Most of the ingredients are already present in an Indian kitchen. The roasted peanut is also available in market these days.
My dear hubby was brought up in Surat and hence he is quite accustomed to Surti Cuisine. He only shared this recipe with me once and I have been making it since then.
In Surat you will find this chaat not only near schools and colleges but also outside public parks and gardens. Being popular recipe in city even ladies make this chaat in kitty party.
