Chopped coriander - 2 tablespoons

Oil for deep frying
Salt as per taste
Heat 2 tablespoonof oil and pour it in jowar flour. Add salt, cumin seeds and knead a dough using water. Make lemon size balls of this dough. Roll it like a puri. Take a small round steel katori (bowl). Grease it with oil from outer side. Take one puri, and stick it on outer side of katori so that puri will get the shape of katori. Prees neatly. Heat oil in kadai for deep frying. Put this katori with puri in oil. When puri will get little cooked….the katori will get separated from the puri. Take out the katori and fry the puri till it gets golden brown. Repeat the procedure for remaining puris.
Mix sprouted moong, chilli powder, salt, chat masala and peanuts in one bowl. Place all fried baskets of puris in one dish. Add sprouted moong mixture in it. Then spread sev, chopped onion, chopped coriander, imli ki chutney and green chutney as you like. Sprinkle some chaat masala on it. Serve immediately.
