Chaat in Dallas

Chaat is traditionally served as a snack, but it's also good for lunch or dinner on the run.
Taj Mahal Imports, a huge Indian supermarket, has been serving chaat for years, but in the past, the chaat stand was only open a few hours on certain days.

Now there's rarely a quiet moment at the busy "Chat Corner" in the back of the store, which is open daily from 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.

Dallas has a number of other places where you can get chaat, but only Taj Mahal "tastes the way it should, is served cooked to order in front of you while you wait, and has the variety," says Mr. Singh.
A little taste of home for Indian natives and a little bit of just plain delicious for the rest of us. I have a feeling that we'll be making our way chaat-ward before long.
