Chaats are my favourites Aloo Chana Chaat is an easy chaat recipe which is perfect for evenings with a cup of chai. This could be whipped up in a jiffy if the potatoes and chana are cooked before hand. It is filler. A tasty and healthy snack / appetizer. Whenever I cook chana for salad or any curries I soak and cook extra to make yummy chaats.

Chaats becomes tasty because of the chutney combinations used. I have posted the chutney recipes for chat two days back. So prepare them first and store them and then you could make the chaats of your choice. This chaat is a combinations and balance of the spicy, tangy and sweet taste which sure would tickle your taste buds. These Indian street foods tastes even better when it is home cooked! I have shared here 2 versions of this chaat with dahi| curd and without dahi make your chat as per your wish!
