Authentic Aloo Chaat Recipe

The following Aloo Chaat recipe is courtesy of our blog contributor Ritu.  What an awesome recipe to start the year with!

Aloo chaat is an authentic Indian street food. It comes from the northern part of India. Or I can specifically say from the capital city of India that is ‘Delhi’. It is also famous by the name of ‘Delhi chaat’.

It is prepared with fried potatoes and has beautiful flavours of Indian spices. It is little spicy, tangy and crispy. It is a simple and filling snack which can be eaten as a side or a stand alone dish.

Deep fried potatoes are tossed with onion, tomato, green chilli’s and lemon juice. Addition of spices of India gives it an authentic Indian flavour and makes it irresistible.

Chutneys of India are famous and are part of most of the Indian street food. Tamarind and mint chutney gives it a tangy and sweet flavour too.

To  make it crunchier we have added pomegranate seeds in it for garnishing. It tastes best when served hot.

You can give lots of variations to this chaat. You can add boiled chickpeas in it. You can add or subtract spices from it. You can even add fruits in it to make it a healthy breakfast option. If you are not fond of fried food, you can even bake these potatoes and make Aloo Chaat.

In India, people prepare it on Navaratas during the fasting. They make it without onion or garlic.Whilst fasting, people can eat potatoes, and use rock salt, fruits and lemon juice. Those are the ingredients they use to make this special chat and it tastes yummy.

It can be prepared in a jiffy, when you have to go out and want to make breakfast which is filling and delicious, you can prepare this in no time.

The best part about this is that it can be prepared with the minimum ingredients available. Most of the ingredients we have used are available in everybody’s kitchen so you don’t have to do any extra preparation for it.

You can prepare the sauces (chutneys) well in advance and can store it in your refrigerator. You can add those chutneys in other dishes you prepare too. These chutneys are a great accompaniment to bread sandwiches and other snacks too. These homemade chutneys can be stored for quiet some time. You can even mix the spices and store it for later use in a jar or a container.

Whenever you want to prepare chaat, you have to fry potatoes and add already prepared chutneys and spices and add onion, tomatoes and lime juice and serve.

It is a best snack for parties too. If you have some guest at home, you can prepare this delicious snack in no time and they will enjoy the flavors and irresistible Aloo Chaat.
