I ate aloo chana chaat in Mirchi restaurant at Esplanade here in Singapore. I love that restaurant for the tasty food, ambience, location – yes location because, it is a life saver when visitors come and we take them to esplanade /Merlion and after the long roaming we will sure be tired and hungry. This restaurant saves us those times. Though I am not a big fan of their aloo chana chaat, I always wanted to try at home as I know I can make it betterWhistling. I make channa masala or pindi chole once a week for Aj’s lunch box and I save some cooked plain channa / raw soaked channa for chaat and have had so many times, only that I have not clicked and posted here. Last two weeks I planned to picture but again I kept postponing. So today is the day, I made, clicked and then had it Winking. There are many versions, here is my version anyways.

    • You can skip onion in this recipe. You can also add tomato along with onion.
    • Chaat masala is the only thing for salt, so add it according to your taste.
    • I love more sweet chutney in my chaat, so add chutneys according to your preference.

Yummy and a filling homemade chaat is what you have in your hands, why to go to chaat stands to eat it out?
