A classic roadside snack from the Delhi region, the Stuffed Aloo Tikki Chaat is something worth waiting in the queue for or you can make it at home! It is a common sight to see people crowding around popular roadside vendors to get a plate of the Stuffed Aloo Tikki Chaat, especially in the cold winter months. The super-tasty aloo tikkis are stuffed with a flavourful green peas stuffing and deep-fried. The crisp yet soft tikkis are then laced with tongue-tickling chutneys and crisp sev. You can prepare and shape the tikkis beforehand, but deep-fry them just before serving. You can enjoy this chaat as an evening snack or even serve it at parties.
