These go really well with soup so rather than taking bread rolls or croutons with soup you should opt for sweet potato/Shakarkandi.

You can have them boiled, baked or pan fried. They are yummy in any way you eat them.

After eating lots of sweets and fried snacks on Diwali these are like a blessing to overworked stomach.

      Same was the case with my kiddos Hema. Now after having this chaat they have started eating boiled too as they have developed a taste for it.
