Recipe Method:
To make the katori (cups):
Sift the flour with the baking powder. Rub the butter in the flour lightly with your finger tips to resemble crumbs. Add 2tbsp water to bind the dough together. Do not knead. Refrigerate for 20 mins. Remove and divide into 12 equal balls. Roll out each ball to fit a small tart mold. Line in the tart molds and bake  in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 8 minutes or till it turns a golden color. If you do not have an oven, prick the lined tarts and deep fry in hot oil till done. Remove and set aside to cool.
To make the chutney:
Heat the oil and add the nigella and fennel seeds. Sauté for 30 seconds and add broken red chilies. Add the tamarind paste, 1 cup water and the jiggery. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer till the chutney is thick and acquires a glaze. Add the roasted cumin powder and salt to taste and allow to cool.
To make the chaat:
Heat the oil and add the cumin seeds and a pinch of asafetida. Allow to splutter. Add the boiled chick peas and toss for a while. Add the red chili powder and toss. Remove from fire. Add all the other ingredients and adjust the seasoning. Fill the chaat in prepared cups and top with a little of the chutney. Alternatively you could serve the chutney on the side as well.
