Aloo Chana Chaat is my take on healthy Indian Street food. Aloo Chana Chaat is basically an Indian snack, quite healthy and literally means Potatoes-Chickpea Salad with tons of yummy flavours. You can make it really spicy if it suits your palate or keep it mild as per your taste buds.
1 Cup Boiled Chickpeas (Chana)
1 Cup Boiled Potatoes
1/2 Cup chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp Green chilli (Handle with care your mouth might get burnt)
2 tbsp Green Onions (Optional but adds a nice bite)
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp roasted cumin pwd
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup Tamarind Sauce/Chutney
(Recipe for Tamarind Chutney here)
Tamarind Chutney can be used in several recipes, enjoyed with variety of snacks, added onto sandwiches, crackers. If you don’t want to prepare your own Tamarind Chutney then you can simply buy it readymade too in bottles in grocery stores.
2 tbsp fresh cilantro leaves
4 tbsp Plain homemade yogurt
1/2 tbsp Mint Leaves (I used dried)
1/2 tsp black pepper powder
(Blend all dressing ingredients together for smooth paste)
Simple mix all ingredients together, pour the dressing over and serve in mini tartletes or party cups.
