In Indian cuisine, chaat is not just a category of street food, but a whole world of flavours and textures that come together into finger-licking goodness.
A proper chaat recipe must have something crispy, crunchy, spicy, and tangy. So, we created a mouthwatering combination of spicy potato patties, sour green chilli chutney, and maple-roasted nuts.
This peanut chaat is not just tasty, but also healthy. Most recipes include deep-fried dumplings or noodles, but we opted for an oven-baked version of the aloo tikki (potato patties). We brushed our spicy potato cakes with little oil and then gently baked them in the oven until crispy.
Moreover, we toasted the peanuts instead of frying them, and we seasoned them with some maple to add sweet contrast to this fiery dish.
The chutney is prepared with green chillies, garlic, ginger, and coriander, which, together with fresh tomatoes, add a pleasant refreshing note to the chaat.
