Chana dahi chaat

As soon as I here the name chat  my  mouth starts watering,and I can feel the tangy ,sweet flavours of it on my tongue .This particular chat was introduced to me by one of our family friends and since then it has become a frequent one especially during summers . 
This velvety smooth ,sweet ,tangy chat seems like teasing the scorching sun outside .Yogurt based dishes or sweets are always welcome with my kids .Had some boiled chana after making chole masala ,so served this chat as an evening snack .If you have boiled chana in the fridge then this is a no fuss recipe that can be whipped up in jiff .
Once my neighbour had visited me ,I was in a dilemma what to serve ,I wanted something Indian and mean while she should not be felt left alone as the kids were to school and there was no one to entertain her .This idea clicked me ,and served it to her and she was so amused by the chat that she asked for the recipe !!!.
So next time when you have guests at home do give it a try .

And  now over to the recipe .......
