Sprouts Chaat

It was no ordinary day. Why ? It was girls day out and our potluck ! Sorry but we absolutely refuse to call ourselves ladies. There was utter chaos .... everyone trying to talk and no one to listen. We all absolutely had to know the recipes just then .... as if that was the last time we would be seeing each other. We all are good cooks ..... that was the point we all wanted to make :-) I was amused watching all the 'girls' and listening to the discussions.

I was getting hungrier by every minute with the aroma of food every where.
I tip toed into the kitchen ..... and gobbled down whatever I could without getting caught. I know it's not good manners, but who cares of manners when it comes to great food.

Are you wondering what this has to do with the Sprouts Chaat ? Well Nothing !! I just remembered the incident .... lol

Before I forget, this Chaat is from Shruti's Kitchen.
