For a typical Indian, the craving for chaat or dahi vada is concurrent with the setting of the sun. Their hankering is only satisfied by the curd soaked vadas, which are dressed with chaat masala, cumin powder, crushed black pepper, chili powder and boondi to establish that perfect sweet versus spice equilibrium.
