With so many variations of chaat out there this aloo chana chaat recipe tastes so good and is so easy to make. The cooked chickpeas go beautifully well with the tanginess of the tamarind chutney and the sweetness of the tomatoes.
All the flavours compliment each other so well making it the perfect side for your next Indian buffet. Not only is it delicious, but this chana chaat recipe is also healthy, packed with protein and so filling! Serve this chana chaat for a snack at any time of the day or even at your next party.
Chana chaat is a tangy and refreshing side usually served alongside common starters such as samosas and pakoras. This Indian street food snack is made with chickpeas, yoghurt, onions, tomatoes, and potatoes.
Chana chaat is a refreshing side that I absolutely love to eat. I love it so much that I will literally eat it by the spoonful. That’s how good it tastes. I absolutely love eating chana chaat with samosas or aloo tikki. I also love it alongside biryani, but it really is up to you how you choose to serve it.
There are many variations of chaat out there from aloo chaat to papdi chaat and I love every single one of them. However, this chana chaat recipe is the one I most frequently make at home, so it only seemed fitting that this would be my first chaat recipe post.
The garnish ingredients are all optional, but it doesn’t really take much effort as the garnishes I use are the same as the ingredients in the actual chaat mixture. All I do is reserve a little bit of each ingredient to serve on top of the chaat.
Potatoes are one of those things that basically taste good in any shape or form, so it’s no surprise that they go wonderfully well in this chana chaat recipe.
There are so many types of potatoes out there and you can really be spoilt for choice. I don’t really have a preference for which type of potatoes I like to use in this chaat recipe and I usually just whatever I have to hand.
I always refrigerate my chaat as it makes it even more refreshing when served alongside the rest of the spicy foods. However, that is optional. I like to prepare my chaat and raita hours beforehand so I can allow it to be cold when I eat it. This makes it the perfect refreshing snack for summer!
