In the clip, we could see the Kanpur chaat vendor preparing a healthy and delectable chaat with different kinds of sprouts. He used boiled black chana, sprouted chana, sprouted moong, sprouted methi seeds, boiled matar, and roasted peanuts in the making of the chutney. These wholesome ingredients were then sprinkled with grated radish leaves, green chillies, lemon juice, spices and some mint chutney.
How wonderful and healthy, right? Instagram users loved the interesting and unique chaat prepared by the Kanpur man. Many appreciated his welcoming smile as well. “The smile on his face is the best thing in the video,” wrote one user in the comments section.
