Out of all the chaat variations, Basket Chaat is the one that has become synonymous with Lucknow. What could be better than all of the delicious chaat ingredients nestled atop a basket made of fried potato or sev? Their regular chaat is also worth trying; the pani puri or pani ke batashe are crispy, and the tangy-spicy water is just right.
