Dahi Batata Sev Puri

This is one of my favorite chat dishes. Crunchy puri's are filled with  cool yogurt and the chutneys compliment the dish and add a zesty flavor.  Every  state in India has its own style of making the dahi puri.  The best chat I had till date is in Delhi in the  famous chandni chowk area. I tried to recollect that taste and recreate whatever I can of this lip smacking dish.
