hosted by E17 Supper Club
The Appetite Festival is drawing to a close, but it is going out with a bang, not a whimper. Exciting events continue to be hosted across the borough, and here at the E17 Supper Club, we’re closing the festival with a repeat of our first ever pop up – Indian street food. Join us in a celebration of colourful and tasty street food, full of robust flavours and textures that tease and tantalise the tastebuds.
Chaat is a generic term that covers almost anything that you buy from a street vendor. There are almost as many different kinds of chaat as there are vendors, and everyone has their favourites. These are some of ours.
Most chaat is served at room temperature. It would be very unusual to find one vendor selling all three of the dishes we are serving in this course, as they are three completely different styles of chaat.
puffed rice and vermicelli with onions, potatoes and crispy wholewheat wafers, topped with a tangy mint chutney
lentil patties in spiced yogurt with tamarind and date chutney, garnished with pomegranate
spicy mixed fruit salad
Picture a potbellied man – it’s always a man, and he always has a potbelly, take my word for it! – sitting cross legged before a stove, a massive griddle on one, an equally gigantic wok on the other, deftly moving between the two, frying here, flipping there….
Aloo tikki chaat
potato cakes topped with tangy, tomatoey chickpeas
deep fried sandwiches, Indian style
NOT REALLY CHAAT AT ALL.....
Nothing like their better known Turkish namesakes, kebabs are very popular in the carnivorous north, where people will drive for miles to feast on grilled meats produced in small hole-in-the-wall shops.
trio of shami kebab (minced meat patties), hara kebab (spinach patties) and chicken tikka, served with coriander chutney and an onion sambal
vermicelli cooked in a cardamom and saffron infused milk pudding
This is what we plan to serve you, but slight changes may occur due to availability or if we come across something even more delicious.
This menu contains nuts and gluten, and because of the nature of the event we won’t be able to cater for any special dietary requirements. Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions about the ingredients we will be using.
