Easy, healthy, extremely versatile Pakistani street style chickpea salad, the aloo chana chaat. One snack that is filling and you can never get bored off.
Have a look at the ingredient and accompaniments of chana chaat. There are many, I know, and might look like too much work.
Begin by making the basic chana gravy. Just add the spices, and potato to a pot with little water. Let it cook until the potatoes are soft.
Pro tip: If making chickpea from scratch, the chickpea develops a starchy gravy naturally. I sometimes add a little onion too for gravy.
his is an easy and simple imli chutney that can be made in no time, while chickpeas are cooking.
Remove the tamarind seeds. If using seedless tamarind pulp than who don't have to do anything.
This is simply sweet yogurt with chaat masala. If using thick greek yogurt, you can dilute it with water for a pouring consistency.
To assemble the chaat bowl, begin with aloo chana at the bottom, imli chutney, and yogurt on the top. Then finish with onion, tomato, cilantro, chilies, lemon, and chaat masala. It tastes great. Trust me!
