Our Menu

As with all Indian cuisine, there is an astonishing variety of flavors and ingredients that make up the perfect chaat. But most of these delectable dishes are made up of five essential components that create an unforgettable sensory experience with a plant-based twist:

Base: A crunchy or crispy foundation like samosas or papri (flour cracker).

Sauce: Plummy sweet tamarind and the savory bite of mint cilantro are the most popular along with cool creamy yogurt. Here at the Factory we make vegan yogurt with our own exclusive recipe!

Crisp: Thin bits of fried potato called sev or puffed rice create an additional layer of texture.

Vegetables: Tomato, onion and potato add flavor and texture. How about some grains, sprouts and seasonal toppings as well?

Spice: Chaat masala, a spice mix, is an essential blend of spices that gives chaat its signature flavor. Made primarily of kala namak, also known as Himalayan black salt, it adds a strong umami flavor that unifies the whole dish.

Indian Cuisine

Origin of Chaat

Like most things Indian, chaat has ancient origins with references to some of our modern-day dishes appearing in Sanskrit writings as far back as 500 BC. More recently (only about 400 years ago), the chaat took form in northern India when the land was ruled by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (builder of the Taj Mahal), in what is now known as Uttar Pradesh. Travelers from other lands picked up on it as they journeyed through the continent and added their own influences. Now, in a country that is filled with countless foods, traditions, religions and languages, chaats are a unifying culinary experience.
