Product Details


“It’s hard to imagine not loving chaat: Few snacks manage to be lusciously creamy and brightly acidic, crackly, saucy, and chewy all at once. Yet somehow, these varied Indian snacks often do it all. Maneet Chauhan, who grew up in Ranchi in East India but is now based in Nashville, where she runs three restaurants, and remembers the chaat and snacks of her childhood train trips across India in this book.”—Epicurious

Chaat is a delicious journey through India’s rich street food culture. But it’s more than that, too— Maneet takes your hand and, in a friendly informative way, demystifies the flavors, geography, and dishes. This is a must-read book for anyone who is interested in cooking Indian cuisine from one of the foremost authorities.”—Jet Tila

“Maneet’s new book, Chaat, is gorgeous, vibrant, heartfelt, educational, and fun. Her passion for food and cooking has always been contagious and it’s on full display in these pages. I learned so much about the cuisine, culture, and history of the different regions of India. Her descriptions bring the food to life and you can vividly imagine the smells and tastes as they seemingly jump off the page and into your senses. Chaat makes me want to run to the nearest Indian grocery, get lost in all the exotic and delicious spices, and start cooking.”—Martina McBride, recording artist, cookbook author

“Maneet is a treasure, a culinary ambassador from India to the United States. Thanks to her we can learn about chaat, which is the perfect lens to see the many colors, flavors, and cultures of India. This book is bright, spicy, salty, sweet, tangy . . . flavors that you will want to have in your kitchen!”—José Andrés

Chaat is a sumptuous whistle-stop tour of India’s diverse food ways. Maneet has penned a love letter to the best of Indian food, found not in big hotels or five-star restaurants, but in the back alleys, train stations, and winding streets where real Indian families come together to enjoy a meal of street food. It is the food of our shared childhoods, it is the joy of the tasty discovery that comes from travel. Every page is a feast for the eyes and the palate. It will make you hungry for more.”—Padma Lakshmi New York Times bestselling author of Love, Loss, and What We Ate and The Encyclopedia of Spices and Herbs and Host/executive producer of Top Chef and Taste the Nation
