aloo chaat recipealoo chaat recipe | how to make spicy alu chaat | potato chaat recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically a street food or fast food prepared by frying (shallow or deep frying) potatoes till crisp. later it is than spiced up with chaat chutney’s like green chutney, imli chutney, chaat masala and topped with finely chopped onions and fine sev.

i have posted several other chaat recipes till, but i have to admit that alu chaat recipes is the most simple yet tasty recipe. traditionally aloo chaat recipes are prepared by deep frying the potato to wedges. however i have shallow fried the boiled potato cubes which makes it less oily and more healthier. perhaps boiling the potatoes and shallow frying may introduce an extra step, but certainly more healthier and cleaner as compared to just deep frying. having said that deep frying is more dearer to taste.

spicy alu chaat

as compared to any other indian chaat recipes, even aloo chaat recipe is open ended. there are several variations to this fast food snack which changes with each regions. while, some prefer to keep it simple without adding onions or sev, but i personally like the combination of all toppings. if you prefer you can skip adding curd, onions and fine sev with just spice powders like chaat masala and chilli powder. also if you are vegan than add few drops of lemon juice which would help to introduce sour taste to it.

finally i would like to highlight my other indian chaat recipes collection with this post. particularly, bhel puri, sev puri, pani puri, dahi puri, samosa chaat, pav bhaji, vada pav, aloo tikki, hara bhara kabab and masala papad. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,
