Katori chaat

mini tarts filled with a spicy mixture of sprouts and chutneys.
I have suggested baking the tart cases but you can stack them up and deep fry them in oil. the cases can be made days in advance and keep well when stored in an air-tight container.
just rustle up the filling and serve these pretty tarts to display your culinary skills to your family and friends
