The word 'chaat' was introduced into the Oxford English Dictionary in March 2005. 'Chaat' is a term describing savoury snacks, typically served at road-side tracks from stalls or carts. With its origins in east India, chaat has become immensely popular in the rest of India as well as much of South Asia. The word derives from the Prakrit word 'cattei' meaning to ‘devour with relish or 'eat noisily'. Most chaat variants are all based on fried dough, with various other ingredients. The original chaat is a mixture of potato pieces, crispy fried bread made of gram or chickpeas and tangy-salty spices, with chilli, tamarind sauce, fresh green coriander leaves and yoghurt for garnish.
