Tota Keri Chaat is derived from Toto Puri Mango. Tota Puri is a type of Mango that has shaped like a beak of a parrot hence the word Tota. It is tart and sweet in flavor and used by many street vendors in India. They would sprinkle salt, chia powder on the it and it would taste so delicious. The salt and red chili powder brings out the tartness from the mango and balances all the flavors. It brings back so many childhood memories. Even today when we visit Matheran or other Hill stations we find these vendors and enjoy these yummy treats.
