while in many street foods here, you ask for cutlet chaat, they serve ragda patties. there are many variations of it in south Indian chaat shops. They do not add much of sauces or chutneys. Coriander chutney, red chutney, and imli chutney are added in some recipes.

There are a few chaat shops we hunt every now and then.
