Aloo Tikki Chaat

It was one of those evenings, where both of us were craving Indian street food and in particular street chaat. Chaat refers to savory snack served in hawkers or street shops. Wouldn’t be lying when we say there are more than 500 different varieties of chaat throughout India. Originated in the north but popular in the whole country.

Rarely this delicacy of our country is available in Germany and definitely not in Wuerzburg. If we want to eat some good Indian chaat we need to pay a visit to Eat Doori in Frankfurt or Chutnify in Berlin. Both too far to go πŸ˜› Then why not make these at home? Hell yeah! That’s exactly what we did πŸ™‚

But which chaat to make out of 500 different varieties πŸ˜• Why did this question even come to our mind I wonder! We live in land of potatoes πŸ˜› so it wasn’t difficult to decide on making Aloo (Potato) tikki (croquettes/pancake) chaat!

It is extremely delicious, super simple and takes you right back to bustling food streets of my country.

Aloo tikki chaat has a variety of toppings and a little bit of prep might be required. But believe me it is very simple to make and if you want to know how to make this .. keep on reading πŸ™‚

Essentially, Aloo tikki chaat has 3 parts. Part 1 is the potato pancake it self. Part 2 is smothering it with different kinds of chutneys and part 3 are different crunchy toppings.

How do we make Part 1?

Ingredients required:

2 Large potatoes – boiled and peeled

Bunch of spices (all 1 teaspoon) – Chaat masala, amchur or dry mango powder, chilli powder, onion powder, garam masala powder, salt and ground black pepper

2 tbsp vegetable oil

Method:

Mash the potatoes well. Add all these spices and mix well to combine them with the potatoes. Make medium ball size forms, flatten it a bit and cook them on both side until brown on a medium hot pan or grill with some oil.

How do we make part 2:

We made two kinds of chutneys – sweet tamarind chutney and spicy corriander mint chutney. We followed recipes from another amazing food blog. We have left the links here πŸ™‚

We seasoned Greek yogurt with salt, pepper and Chaat masala.

How do we prep part 3:Β 

Ingredients:

1 large onion chopped

1 large tomato chopped

Bhujiya or Sev (crunchy toppings from India)

Here you don’t need to make anything but to keep these things ready for assembly πŸ™‚

For assembly:Β 

Place the potato Patty/pancake on a clean plate.

Add seasoned yogurt, corriander mint chutney, sweet tamarind chutney on top.
