Roshni posted on 26 July

Pani puri brimming with piquant and spicy tamarind water, bhel puri loaded with plenty of sev or samosas served with a sprinkling of onions, sev and tangy chutney — we just never seem to get enough of chaat, do we? The city has quite a few places offering the authentic kind {no grated carrots, cucumber or cabbage in our chaat, please!}, perfect to munch on during the evenings, when the hunger pangs strike. Without further ado, here’s where you can get the best chaat in Bangalore.

Everything from the aloo chaat to their bhel puri and pani puri is sure to lure you back here for more. If you’re up for a bit of adventure, we suggest you try their Rasgulla Chaat.
