The dish looks just what it sounds like — a rangoli. This sumptuous snack is akin to a sev puri, in the way of ingredients that go in. It is extremely easy to prepare, and even simpler to just dip your puris in the bowl of mix and have your fill. 

All you need is potato mix, green and red chutneys along with the epic chaat masalas, chana daal, peanuts, curd and layered with pomegranates.
