CHAAT is a street food. It is served as side dish or snacks. It is more popular among North Indians. Chaat is made with boiled potatoes (Aloo). The potatoes are shallow fried and served by mixing other spices, onions and various mouth-watering chutneys.
Chaat too has many variations and flavours that include Aloo chaat, Aloo-chana chaat, Aloo-green peas chaat, papdi chaat, samosa chaat, pani puris, basket chaat and many other.
“Chaatna” is the hindi word of chaat which means to taste.
Today, I am going to make Aloo and green peas (matar) chaat. However, making chaat with Aloo is very healthy as it contains dietary fibers and good source of vitamin B-6 and vitamin C. Whereas, Green peas which is also known as Hari matar or garden peas or Chhimi are also very healthy. The green peas are rich in minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants. Fresh green peas are available in winters only. For the rest of the year you can get the frozen one.
Chaat is favourite of young and old. Even Kids cannot stop themselves to take their hands off from the yummy dish. It’s a mouth-watering dish.
