Think chaat and this is one of the first options that comes to mind. The Aloo Tikki Chaat needs no introduction to those who are familiar with the street foods of India. Very famous in Mumbai and North India, this chaat is now available all over the country even in small eateries and roadside stalls! Crunchy and succulent tikkis made of potatoes are bathed in curds and spruced up with sweet and green chutneys and an exciting mix of spice powders. A garnish of sev adds crunch to the Aloo Tikki Chaat while pomegranate gives you spots of nice juicy sweetness. Much loved by all, this chaat is definitely one worth trying to make in your own kitchens. Make it with a flourish like the roadside vendors do and serve it with love, for your family and friends to relish.
