Course: Appetiser, Snack, Starter
Cuisine: Indian, North Indian
Author: Maria Jose Martin


For Sweet Chutney

  • 3/4 cup Grated jaggery
  • 10-12 Dates
  • Big lemon size Tamarind
  • 3/4 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp Saunf (fennel powder) ( (optional))
  • 1 tsp Roasted cumin powder
  • Water (as required)
  • Salt

For Green Chutney

  • 2 cups Chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 cup Pudina/mint leaves
  • 2-3 Green chillis
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 1.5 tsp Sugar
  • pinch of salt

For assembling the puri

  • 20-25 Puri / Golgappa
  • 1 big Potato (cubed, boiled and slightly mashed)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Whisked yogurt
  • 1 medium Onion (chopped)
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup Sweet chutney
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup Green chutney
  • Chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tsp Roasted cumin powder
  • 2 tsp Chilli powder
  • 1-2 tsp Chaat masala (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Sev


  • To make sweet chutney
  • Soak tamarind in 2 cups of warm water for 5 mns. Heat a heavy bottomed vessel, add the tamarind along with the water and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and cool. Once cool, grind this tamarind mixture along with dates to a fine paste, adding very little water. Strain through a sieve and pour this tamarind-date paste back into the heavy bottomed vessel.
  • Cook on slow to medium flame for 2-3 mns. Add the grated jaggery and allow it to melt and blend well with the tamarind date mix. Continue to cook till it becomes a thick pouring consistency, approx 15-18 mns.
  • Add chilli, cumin, saunf powders and salt to taste and combine. Turn off heat. Even if the chutney is thick, its fine. Once cool, refrigerate and use as required.
  • To make green chutney
  • Wash pudina and coriander leaves thoroughly and allow the water to drain. Grind the mint leaves, coriander leaves, salt, sugar, lemon juice and green chillis to a fine paste, by adding 2 tbsp water. Remove into a bowl. Refrigerate until use. It keeps well in fridge for 2-3 days.
  • Assembling the puris:
  • Crush the top of the puris to place the fillings. Fill each puri with the mashed potatoes, then add chopped onions. Fill each puri with sweet and green chutney, followed by the yogurt. Sprinkle the sev and roasted cumin, chilli and chaat masala (if using) powder on top of each puri. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve immediately, otherwise the puris will become soggy.


You can store the sweet chutney in fridge for 2-3 months. If it's too thick, add a bit of water to loosen it.
Also while making the sweet sauce, adjust the sweetness and sourness as per your taste. If you want to add more tamarind at a later stage, soak the tamarind in hot water for a few min and squeeze out the pulp and add to the sauce.
I like the coolness from yogurt, so I usually use slightly chilled yogurt. Whisk the yogurt well to remove lumps and also make sure it isnt sour.
