Chatpate Aloo is Punjab's version of the ever popular potato wedges. Crisp, deep-fried potato fingers are tossed with peppy spice powders, crunchy capsicum and finally with sesame seeds, which gives the Chatpate Aloo the ultimate aroma and flavour boost! Of the myriad flavours and textures that comprise this snack, the tanginess of amchur powder and the crispness of sesame seeds are especially enjoyable. Peel and cut the potatoes into medium-sized fingers, because cutting them too thin will cause them to break while cooking, while cutting it too thick will increase the cooking time unreasonably.

Oh wow!! Aloo deep fried and tossed with capsicum and masalas is bound to taste good. Was really yummy. And the addition of sesame seeds in the end is a very good idea, it not only gives a good eye appeal but also tastes great.
