Step 1: The Base
Instead of buying a chaat from a restaurant, consider learning how to make it yourself. The main component is aloo tikki or fried potato patties. To get started, combine boiled potatoes, chana dal (split chickpeas), green chili peppers and ginger in a food processor with black salt and pepper. Grind these ingredients together until they’re almost like dough, then scoop out two small balls of mixture and flatten them into round patties.
Step 2: Cook Potatoes
While your oil is heating up, prepare your potatoes. Dice them into small, bite-sized cubes and place in a colander over your sink or in a bowl. Add salt to taste and pour warm water over them until they’re covered; let them sit for five minutes or so. Pat potatoes dry with paper towels once done soaking—this ensures they will be totally fry.
For best flavor add amount of these ingredients in fry potatoes
- green coriander
- green chili
- black salt
- piper chili
- normal salt
- lemon sap
- rice flour
these all ingredients mix together
Step 4: Cook Chickpeas or Peas
Cover chickpeas with water and cook until soft, about 30 minutes. Drain any remaining water from chickpeas and reserve liquid for later use. Mash chickpeas with a fork or masher into small pieces that are still somewhat chunky. The goal is just to break them up a bit so they’re easier to eat in a chaat.
Add the following ingredients in boiling chickpeas, these are following
- cutting of green chili
- turmeric powder
- coriander powder
- chili power
- mango power
- cumic power
- some amount of fry potatoes add
Step 3: Cook Onions
Onions add a sweet layer of flavor to your chaat. Cook them on medium heat until they turn transparent. This should take approximately 15 minutes. After you cook your onions, place them in a separate bowl and set aside until you’re ready for them in step 5. In case some of your onion pieces get burned while cooking, you can scoop those out and use fresh ones later on in step 5, when everything is cooked together. For now, just place them in a different bowl and store until needed!
Step 5: Finish With Some Green Chutney and a Touch of Cilantro
Green chutney is tangy and salty, so it’s a perfect accompaniment for most savory Indian snacks. Cilantro (also known as fresh coriander) is an aromatic herb that adds flavor, aroma and crunch to recipes. Add some cilantro and a spoonful of green chutney on top of your aloo tikki chaat for that extra burst of flavor.
Step 6: Other Vegetables?
In addition to potatoes, a good chaat always includes fresh vegetables and herbs, such as tomato, onion, sweet red pepper (capsicum), or grated carrots. You can also add lightly cooked seasonal vegetables such as cauliflower florets, broccoli stems, zucchini slices or even eggplant (brinjal). If you’re not using raw vegetables in your recipe, steam them for about 10 minutes before adding them so they are warm and ready to eat when you begin assembling your chaat.
