Babu Kachri is a very popular street food in Mombasa, Kenya. It consists of a thick tangy potato gravy, sprinkled with crushed potato crisps and khara sev (a fried crispy snack made from chickpea flour and spices) and topped with a spicy chutney. It is loved by all ages, from children to adults. The mix is unique because it is a blend of different culture cuisine into one.  From Arab influence to Indian inspired snacks.
