Dahi Aloo Chaat – Quick and tempting snack of boiled potato,yogurt and Indian spices
I love chaat’s made with Potatoes, many of which I have already posted. But these recipe need some pre planning, stir frying or deep frying. As we all know that if potato is fried then only it become loaded with calories, and boiled potato is not that high in calorie so can be used easily and guilt free.
This dahi aloo chaat is a popular street food/chat of North India specially from my home town. Boiled potatoes are soaked in yogurt and then roasted cumin powder, chili powder is sprinkled over it. A spoon full of green chutney and tamarind chutney is drizzled over to make it delicious and tempting.
This dahi aloo chaat is also a ideal recipe for fasting days as it didn’t require frying or roasting and use the delicious –Aam papad chutney and Green Mint chutney to drizzle over it if you are fasting.
