aloo chana chaat recipe

chaat time on the blog. sharing an easy chaat snack. one which can be had as a starter, brunch or as an evening snack.

if you have some boiled chana left, then its pretty simple to assemble this chaat. generally when i make amritsari chole or chana masala, then i always boil extra chana and keep in the fridge. these come handy to make quick recipes like falafel, hummus, chana pulao and this chana 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 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 chana chaat can be served at room temperature or chilled. if serving chilled, then add the crushed papdis, sev and coriander leaves while serving.
