Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat

Chaat, is definitely the national snack of India, a traditional street food and something which all Indians are always home sick about. Any form of Chaat is full of flavor, sweet, tangy, spicy, salty, crunchy, soft, topped with cold yogurt and various chutneys. Last weekend with the Day Light Savings, I had this sudden burst of energy to make Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat in the evening. I had all the store bought chutneys so it was easy and quick for me to just concentrate on the Tikki and Chole.


Ingredients : Aloo Tikki
  • 2 Potatoes, boiled
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Green Peas
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Bread Crumb
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Chaat Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • Green Chilly


Boil the Potatoes and peel the skin off. Mash them well along with the Green Peas. Next mix all the Spices, Bread Crumb, Salt and Green Chillies to taste. Make round balls and flatten them.


Heat 1 tsp of oil in a skillet and shallow fry the Aloo Tikki, till both the sides turn brown.

Ingredients : Chole
  • 1 Can Garbanzo Beans
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 2 Cloves
  • Onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 2 tsp Chole Masala
 
I use canned beans, so I prefer to boil them in salt water for about 10 minutes. Heat oil in a wok, add the Cinnamon and the Cloves, then add the chopped onions and fry them till they become soft. Add the Ginger Garlic paste, Chole masala and cook till oil separates. Next add the boiled beans, add about 1 cup of water, cover and cook for another 10 minutes.

Aloo Tikki Chole Chaat Preparation:
  • 1 cup Yogurt, mixed with Salt, Sugar and Cumin Powder
  • Tamarind Chutney
  • Green Chutney
  • Onions, chopped to garnish
  • Chopped Cilantro to garnish
  • Sev
  • Chaat Masala
In a bowl, pour a ladle of Chole, place 2 Aloo Tikki on top. Pour the prepared Yogurt, Tamarind and Green Chutney. Garnish with chopped Onions, Cilantro, Sev and sprinkle Chaat Masala. Enjoy this spicy tangy Chaat.
