Significantly, potato is one such tuber root which we all love, be it a potato sabji, chilli potato, potato chaat, aloo methi, or aloo tamatar sabji. And, to be sure, our very famous potato, goes in almost all the chaat of Mumbai street food or favourite Delhi street food recipes. To name a few, aloo tikki, samosa chaat, ragda pattice, puchka, sev puri, dahi puri et al. We in India get it easily on chaat stalls especially set up for only these items and trust me, people of all ages surrounds the stall. Mumbai chaats and Delhi style chaats are very famous and spicy aloo chaat specifically is the most popular Indian snack.
I remember during my college days, after lectures all of us would specially go sometime to enjoy these chaats 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 potato chaat taste here anymore and I really miss it. So why not get that taste at your home itself. I love this boiled aloo chaat recipe and the chunks of potato well mixed in chutneys and seasoned with the nylon Sev tastes purely heaven.
