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 😛 Then why not make these at home? Hell yeah! That’s exactly what we did 🙂
But which chaat to make out of 500 different varieties 😕 Why did this question even come to our mind I wonder! We live in land of potatoes 😛 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 🙂
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?
2 Large potatoes – boiled and peeled
2 tbsp vegetable oil
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 seasoned Greek yogurt with salt, pepper and Chaat masala.
How do we prep part 3:
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 🙂
Place the potato Patty/pancake on a clean plate.
Add seasoned yogurt, corriander mint chutney, sweet tamarind chutney on top.
Add your onions, tomatoes and sev!
That’s it, it’s super simple.
***You could even buy the chutneys from Indian shop in your city or online***
