Aloo chaat from India


Chaat is finger food, so don't be shy about picking it up and munching it right down. If you're particularly concerned about greasy fingers, just grab a little naan and surround the chaat.


3 potato
1 tomato
1 onion (medium sized)
  cooking oil (vegetable oil for frying)


  1. Wash and dice the potatoes and the tomato into small cubes, then slice the onion.
  2. Fry potatoes in vegetable oil.
  3. Place the fried potatoes on a paper towel to drain the grease, then mix in with the diced tomatoes.
  4. Toss in the onion slices and sprinkle the result with the masala.
  5. Then, pour on the lemon juice.


Chaat is all about frying, so it's better to fry the potatoes than boil them, but the latter is an option.

For a nice variation that is a little more spicy, add a bit of chili and cumin powders.
