Bangalore Special- Tomato Puri Slices

Bangalore Chaat is special. I can see my Mumbai cousins and Delhi friends rolling their eyes. It is surely different but for those who grew up in Bangalore, it is what we love. Walking past a chaat food cart on the street smelling the distinct smells of the masala puri takes you back to your childhood. There are other chaat dishes which are quintessential Bangalore; tomato puri slices, nipattu masala chaat, congress masala and boti masala among many others.

The other day I saw a post in a FB friend’s post on tomato puris and it brought back memories. This is an easy an quick snack to make. I used store bought tamarind chutney and green chutney (mint coriander chutney). I had bhel mix, puffed rice, roasted peanuts and sev in the pantry. All these ingredients are available in an indian store. I used tomatoes from the garden. The tomatoes are the star of the dish.

Since I sprinkled ingredients, I am not giving exact meaurements.


  • 1 – 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • green chutney
  • tamarind chutney
  • cilantro, chopped
  • bhel or puffed rice
  • roasted peanuts
  • sev
  • salt
  • chilli powder
  • chat powder


  • Slice tomatoes and place on plate
  • Spread 1/4 tsp of each chutney on the tomato slice
  • Sprinkle some onions, carrots, cilantro on each slice
  • Place about a tablespoon of bhel or puffed rice, sev and a few peanuts on each slice.
  • Sprinkle some salt and chat masala and serve immediately.
  • Eating this will be messy. Pick up the tomato slice like a pizza slice and bite into it. Keep napkins ready
  • Enjoy!
