Cheerios bhel/Easy chat recipe/Party Idea

             I got a whole packet of cheerios lying in pantry untouched .Sometimes my daughter have it for her breakfast along with milk .Me and my husband never have serials for breakfast .I saw this idea from Manjula who is  a good friend of mine and fantastic blogger .My husband was asking for more of this eventhough he came late that day .Thanks manju for this fantastic idea
          I made a whole lot of bhujia and used some of them for this chat .For sweet chutney i made  dates chutney along with mint chutney to spread in the chat .My kid loved it to the core .You can prepare this for parties ,i mean keep everything seperately and people will mix whatever they want in the proportion they want.You can add some  chocolate pieces,some fruits like pineapple ,pomagranate to make the chat more colorful and people who like fruits will add more fruits to their chat .Fantastic idea right ?Ok now we see how i made it .

  • Soak the kala channa for 8 hours and pressure cook it for 3 whistles or until it becomes soft
  • Boil the potatoes for 3 whistles and mash them well.
  • Cut the onion ,tomato thinly .
  • Prepare the mint and dates chutney with following method.
Mint chutney:

Dates chutney:

  • soak the dates with water for 2 hours or soak in little hot water .
  • grind it to  smooth paste


  • Divide potatoes,onions,boiled channa,bhujia ,tomatoes in to 3 equal portions.
  • Mash the potatoes and add it to the serving bowl.

  • Add cheerios to it .

  • Add Channa to the top of it .
  • Add a pinch of garam masala,pinch of chili powder and pinch of salt
  • Add chopped corinader leaves and serve it with mint and dates chutney .


  • You can add more chili powder ,garam masala if you wish .
  • You can add little lemon juice also while serving if you like the bhel to be little tangy (already we are adding tomatoes so add little less juice)
  • Adjust the bhujia and chutney as per your taste.
  • Add little more salt because you are adding potatoes .potatoes always require more salt .
  • Regular chaat chutney have ginger ,chat masala etc but i made it very simple,But this chutney is no less than chaat chutney in taste according to me . 
  • You can add greengramdal/Whole moong dal instead of channa .
  • You can add puffed rice/pori instead of cheerios .
  • Feel free to add fruits like pineapple,pomagranate
