What a delightful experience it is to watch the baby potato turn into something so exciting! Tiny potatoes, marinated in Indian spices and sautéed in oil, are topped with moong, sev and other typical chaat add-ons.

Although Aloo Chaat is not an integral part of all chaat counters, it has a fan-following of its own, especially in the winter, when its spiciness and warmth rejuvenate the soul.

This aloo chaat recipe is very different than the regular aloo chaat we get. It is spicy and a great combination of potatoes with masalas, curds, sev, sprouts...
