Popular Mumbai roadside chaat recipes

  1. Mumbai is famous for it's roadside chaat recipes, we have tried recreating the same stree-style recipe. Here are some recipes that you must try :

How to cook baby potatoes

  1. To make the Aloo Chaat , we first have to wash and boil the potatoes. For that, wash the baby potatoes under running water till clean. Scrub them with the help of a brush if there is any mud and dirt stuck to it.  Here, we have taken around 1.5 cups of raw baby potatoes.
  2. Boil enough water in a deep non-stick pan and add salt to it.
  3. Add the baby potatoes to the boiling water and cook on a medium flame till the baby potatoes are completely cooked. They should not be very soft or else they will break on cooking. The cooking might take around 18-20 minutes on a medium flame with closed lid.
  4. Turn off the heat and drain the potatoes.
  5. Transfer to plate to cool them completely or run them under cold water so that they stop cooking more. Once cooled, cut them horizontally into 2 pieces. 
  6. Now peel the potatoes with your hands. Keep aside.

Marinating & cooking potatoes for aloo chaat

  1. For the marinade of aloo chaat recipe, take a medium sized deep bowl and add 2 tbsp oil in it. 
  2. Now add the chilli powder to this for a spicy kick.
  3. Also add the coriander-cumin seeds powder.
  4. Also, add the turmeric powder for a bright yellow color.
  5. Then add the dried mango powder for a pleasant sour (khatta) taste. If you do not have amchur, then add chaat masala, anardana powder or fresh lemon juice.
  6. Now add the besan for binding.
  7. Finally add salt to taste and coriander leaves. Add salt moderately as amchur is a little salty.
  8. Mix well so that the flavors come together very well.
  9. Add the potato halves to this. 
  10. Mix gently with the help of two spoons and keep aside to marinade for 5 to 7 minutes. This is a very important step as the potatoes need to take on the flavor of the marinade.
  11. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in a broad non-stick pan.
  12. Add the prepared marinated potatoes and mix well. Be sure to mix them gently so that the potatoes do not break. Alternately you can even toss them if you are comfortable.
  13. Cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring occasionally, till they are heated through and get a little browning on them. Once cooked perfectly, you can see all the masalas coat the potatoes very nicely.
