aloo chaat | navratri fasting recipe
aloo chaat recipe is a simple and easy dish that can be made during navratri or any fast. at home we prepare many delicacies during navratri and aloo chaat is one of them.
i generally don’t fast except for the first day of navratri, but my mil does and we make many fasting recipes during this time.
i plan to add some simple and easy to make vrat or fasting recipes for navratri this season. so here i present an easy recipe of aloo chaat.
this is a little spicy, tangy and crispy potato chaat. you can serve the chaat with some tamarind-dates chutney or green chutney.
if not making for navratri, then use regular salt or black salt. these can also be had as a quick snack or starters. even kids would love this snack.
if you are wondering, then in the pic, the chaat is served with mango squash. the pics are not good, as when i was taking the pics, my camera battery conked off. i had even forgotten to charge the spare battery.
so all i could take was a total of only 3 pics. but for me what counts is the recipe and i am not so particular about having the best of the best pics.
i am easy on myself as far as the pics are concerned and hence have added them.
