[2nd contest] Cracker Chaat with Indian Flavours [Lv.Advanced]

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Agar Agar is generally used for desserts and sweet as seen on the internet. Just wanted to create something savory and which could incorporate Indian flavors. Thought of chaat which has all senses of taste e.g., sweet, spicy, tangy, salty, etc. The lower layer is a curd based with a salty taste, the middle layer is tomato soup with tangy and sweet flavors and the topmost is spicy, tangy n sweet with jalapenos n vinegar.
