If legends are to be believed, this snack originated from Shah Jahan's kitchen. Over the course of time, a multitude of recipes and versions have evolved, differing from town to town, vendor to vendor. What they do have in common is that they are crispy, spicy and sweet all at once. Some famous chaats are bhel puri, dahi puri, paani puri and papdi chaat.
