Most often found in Indian street food stalls, the chaat spices include cumin, dried coriander, black peppercorns and tamarind. For this fragrant meal you’ll grace pan-toasted cauliflower and chickpeas with those flavours, and top them with sweet-tangy tamarind-date chutney. Serve over a swoosh of cooling yogurt and garnish with crispy onions—and a final sprinkle of cilantro for freshness.

Start the chaat
In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Toss the cauliflower florets (halve beforehand if large) with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the cauliflower to the pan. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned and partially cooked.

Mise en place
While the cauliflower cooks, juice the lemon. Pit and roughly chop the dates. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; thinly slice into half-moons on an angle. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. In a medium bowl, make the crisp cucumber salad by combining ½ tbsp lemon juice with 2 tbsp oil (double both for 4 portions); season with S&P to taste. Add the cucumbers, ½ the cilantro and as much of the red onion as you’d like; toss to combine.

Finish the chaat
Rinse and drain the chickpeas. To the pan of partially cooked cauliflower, add the chickpeas and season with the remaining spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes, until warmed through; season with S&P and as much of the remaining lemon juice as you’d like.

Make the tamarind-date chutney
While the chaat cooks, in a small bowl, heat the tamarind, dates and ¼ cup water (double for 4 portions) in the microwave, in 15 second increments, until hot. Using a fork, mash the dates; season with S&P to taste.

Finish & serve
Divide the yogurt between your plates and spread in a circular motion; season with S&P. Top the yogurt with the chaat. Drizzle the chaat with as much of the tamarind-date chutney as you’d like. Garnish with the crispy onions, as much of the remaining cilantro as you’d like and a spoonful of the crisp cucumber salad. Serve any remaining salad on the side. Bon appétit!
