Tostitos chaat

This time we got the shell shaped(like small diwali panati/diya) tostitos, our favourite mexican corn chips! Its goes really well with the chunky salsa.
But my taste buds (seems to be missing the chaat) brought a chatpatta thought to mind. So is born a tostitos chaat that taste so much like the channa jor garam back home....aamchi ruchira agadi sukhawli :)

10-12 Shell shaped tostitos scoops
2 tbsp sweet corns
2 tbsp finely chopped onions
2 tbsp finely chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp finely chopped cucumber
1 green chilli/jalapeno finely chopped
1 tsp chaat masala
1 pinch of garam masala
1 tbsp fresh corriander finely chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients except tostitos to make a chaat mix. Line the tostitos shells on plate. Place a spoonful of the mixture on each shell.
Serve just like that.
This can make a nice light starter for a vegetarian party or can be used as a last course of the meal!
