All we need to do is, just fry the boiled potatoes and assemble the chaat. Enjoy the easy and quick Aloo Chaat anytime with your family and friends.
So, even now when I am done making, shooting and eating the most delicious Chatpati Aloo Chaat, I am yet craving for it like I have not had it in ages. Aloo Chaat is indeed amongst the most favorite chaat followed by Pani puri, Sev Puri, Bhel puri. Not only Aloo Chaat, but many more many more chaat items are loved by Asian, most probably in India and the neighboring countries which is worldwide famous and most demanding.
We in India get it easily on chaat stalls especially set up for only these items and trust me the stalls are surrounded by people of all ages. Chaats of Mumbai and Delhi are very famous and Aloo Chaat specifically is the most popular snack.
I remember during my college days, after lectures all of us would specially go sometime to enjoy these savories also at weekend with family. We had a fixed shop in our locality where we used to visit in the evening and nosh on every item they had in their menu. Not just budget friendly but it was taste friendly as well. And trust me, still when I visit that place, it has the same taste, same cleanliness and even the owner did not change.
Now, when I shifted here in Bangalore, we hardly get that taste here anymore and I really miss it. So why not get that taste at your home itself. I love this Aloo Chaat and the chunks of potato well mixed in chutneys and seasoned with the nylon Sev tastes purely heaven.
Basic ingredients that goes in Quick Spicy Aloo Chaat :
Ingredients are very easy and convenient to assemble, so as it is an Aloo Chaat, we are surely using boiled potatoes, onion, coriander leaves, green chilies, mint coriander chutney, meethi chutney, cumin powder, coriander seeds, chili flakes or you may also use red chili powder, chaat masala, lemon juice, fine sev, pomegranate seeds, oil to fry potatoes and black salt.
If you have restriction in diet, you may skip frying potatoes and simply just use the boiled potatoes. Well, you may also use the fried ones but consume less, which is surely never happening especially if there is Aloo Chaat in the house.
You may have this Alu Chaat with chai in the evening which is probably the best time to have it and since it has aloo i.e. potatoes no one is either disliking or leaving it that is the best part about it. Every bite is a punch full of tangy, spicy, meetha and chatpata flavor.
I still feel the taste of all the ingredients with coarse crunch and incredible texture along with the satisfying balance of everything to the core of infinity.
