It is a simple and easy dish that can be made during Navratri fasting or any other fast or during regular days also. if not making for Navratri fasting, then use regular salt or black salt. I have also shared another easy and quick Aloo chaat recipe which can be made on regular days.

At home we prepare many delicacies during Navratri and this 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.

  2. Hi Dasana,
    I think some spices used in chaat masala are not suitable for fasting.
    Hetal

    1. Hi Hetal
      it depends. in our family we use these spices. i know of some families which don’t use garam masala etc during fasting. it varies from community to community.

    1. It is a very quick n easy recipe to be made n I love potatotes very much. thank you mam for the recipe

  3. Hi Dassana! =)

    So this is the chaat masala recipe, right? I always wondered how the masala mix was done from scratch. I know somebody who makes those freshly at home but I never really enjoyed the taste that much compared to the everest masalas.

    1. this recipe uses chaat masala. the chaat masala can be easily made at home. may be the people who made the masala did not use the correct spices, otherwise homemade ones are much much better in taste and flavor than the outside ones.

  4. Yum. I love all Indian potato dishes. So weird to think they are a New World vegetable, they are made for Indian spices!

  5. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Great to have it during the fasts or even as a quick snack.

    1. thanks mina ji. this is is a nice recipe to have as a quick snack during fasts or even regular days
