Street Scenes: Chaat Vendor India

You can find Chaat stalls on the streets of India just about anywhere. Chaat, a common form of street food which varies by region, is snacks served on a small plate or bowl often made of dried banana leaves.

These two had set up business outside the main entrance of the defunct city of Fatehpur Sikri. The artfully arranged mix of fruit and vegetables were sprinkled with chaat masala (a blend of spices) and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

See the thing that concerns me is the sanitary situation. There is clearly no running water and the food is rather too close to the ground for my liking.
