aloo chana chaat recipe

If you have some boiled chickpeas left, then its pretty simple to assemble this chaat. Generally when I make chana masala, then I always boil extra chickpeas and keep in the fridge. These come handy to make quick recipes like falafel, hummus, chana pulao and this chaat. You could also use canned chickpeas.

Usually when I make chaat, I prepare the chaat chutneys a day before and refrigerate. The red chili chutney and tamarind chutney keeps well for some weeks. Whereas the green chutney keeps well for a day or two.

The aloo chana chaat recipe can also be made into a salad. just add some grated carrots, blanched french beans, beetroots, zucchini to the chaat. Skip the papdi and sev, if serving as a salad.

In this aloo chana chaat, I have added 3 chutneys:

If you do not have the time to make these chaat chutneys, then just add the spice powders and still enjoy the chaat. Do drizzle some lemon juice while serving.

This aloo chana chaat can be served at room temperature or chilled. If serving chilled, then add the crushed papdis, sev and coriander leaves while serving.

How to make aloo chana chaat

1. Take 1.5 to 2 cups cooked chickpeas or chana in a mixing bowl. To cook the dried chickpeas, soak ½ cup dried chickpeas overnight in enough water. Drain very well. Then pressure cook the chana in 1.5 cups water + ¼ tsp salt till they are completely cooked.  when the pressure settles down on its own, open the lid and strain the chana. Let them become warm or come to room temperature.
