Some scholars think that chaats like Dahi Vada (Dahi Bare) have ancient origins. Manasollasa, a Sanskrit encyclopaedia written in the 12th century and collected by Someshvara III, who reigned from modern-day Karnataka, includes a recipe for dahi wada (as kshiravata). Food historian K.T. Achaya claims that writings from 500 B.C. have descriptions of dahi vada. Kurush Dalal, a culinary anthropologist, asserts that the Chaat’s historical origins may be traced to late 17th-century Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in northern India (now Uttar Pradesh).


Chaat is famous in South Asia in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.
