Tomato Canapes | Tomato Chaat

Chaat is a savory snack, typically served at road-side tracks from stalls in India. Basically the chaat variants are all based on fried dough, with various other ingredients. The original chaat is a mixture of potato pieces, crisp fried bread / dahi vada / dahi bhalla, gram or chickpeas, tangy-salty spices, with some Indian chutney, fresh coriander leaves and finally yogurt for garnish. But nowadays, there are a huge variety of chaats available in market which include golgappa chaat, bhel puri, dahi puri, sprouted moong chaat,  panipuri, dahi vada, papri chaat etc.

Today I have come up with a recipe, tomato chaat or tomato canape where the tomatoes are used as a base. 

Well, tomatoes are loaded with many health benefits. Tomatoes are a treasure when it comes to their antioxidant benefits due to the high concentration of lycopene. Lycopene is a carotenoid pigment which is related to red tomatoes. 

In terms of conventional antioxidants tomatoes provide an excellent amount of vitamin C and beta-carotene, a very good amount of the mineral manganese and a good amount of vitamin E. Hence tomatoes keep your health in good shape as well as help in preventing several diseases like prevent several types of cancer, maintain strong bones, good for skin, good for digestion, reduce risk of heart disease, improve vision and many more too. In fact, these are incredibly versatile and can also be prepared in a variety of dishes, as well as being great to eat alone. 

Tomato canapes or tomato chaats are so easy to assemble and ready to serve in few minutes. Since I had run out of mint chutney, so used lime juice. Grated beetroot can also be added here for toppings. These healthy canapes can be used as kids snack, a great party appetizer. So lets go in details.
