Chatpati Aloo Chaat (Potato Chaat)

Enjoy hot crispy fried potatoes tossed with spicy masala.

  • 2 large boiled potatoes cut into small chunks
  • Oil to deep fry
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • Ginger Juliennes
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • ½ cumin powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • Coriander leaves finely chopped

  • Heat sufficient oil in a skillet till medium hot; add boiled potato chunks and deep fry till crisp and golden. Drain and place on an absorbent paper.
  • Transfer the potatoes into a big bowl. Add salt, chaat masala, red chili powder, cumin powder, green chilies, coriander leaves and lemon juice and mix well.
  • Transfer the mixture into a serving bowl, garnish with ginger strips and serve immediately.
When boiling potatoes add some salt to the water itself as potatoes absorb salt better this way.
