Easy Snack: Neplai Matar Chatpate Recipe (Butwal Style) :D

This is another version of very popular Chatpate back home and especially found in my hometown Butwal :) I have been to many places in Nepal and have tasted different kinds of Chatpate but nothing was close to the one we used to get in my hometown. Sadly, though I did not see any Chatpate Thela (cart) when I was home last time :( However, good news is that I still remember the taste and it helped me a lot to recreate yummy Batauli ko Chatpate! This was my first try and the result was fantastic. Here you go guys, have a Chatpate weekend. Also, click here for another version of Chatpate recipe.
