Need an appetizer or snack for a party, try katori chaat recipe or tokri chaat!! ‘Katori or tokri’ refers to a bowl or canopies that are filled with potatoes and chutneys and ‘chaat’ is the term used for savory Indian street snacks. No doubt making the fried version of katoris seem like a daunting task but the end product is D-licious. These crunchy savory bowls or shells will make your taste buds watery.
Below I have displayed two version of katoris – fried as well as baked. Baked version is much healthier and easy to make but the fried katoris are equally rocking. The dough requirement for both the katoris is different. Baked katoris dough needs milk/curd to keep it soft compared to fried ones that only needs water to knead the dough.
Follow the step by step tutorial below to make your yummy katoris. Allow them to cool down completely before stuffing.
About the filling- be as creative as you can- just play around and you can have an amazing filling for these katoris/canopies. Few other options listed below –
- Combine sprouts, corn, spring onions black beans, salt and pepper. Toss. Fill katoris with this mix, add sour cream on top and serve.
- Fill them up with marinara sauce, some veggies, cheese and bake them. VOILA – you have a wonderful kid’s friendly – pizza katori recipe.

Give them a try and they sure will be a hit at a dinner party, kid’s birthday party, game party or a kitty party. Make some extra katoris as believe me everyone in your family will crave for more.
- Baked Katoris can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. Just before serving warm them up in microwave and top them with toppings and serve.
