Dilli ki Aloo Matar Chaat

I was looking for something that I can make with potatoes & I fumbled upon this recipe. The moment I read this , I knew I would be making it soon ..

It took about 15 minutes for me to make this & the end result was just yummy

Dilli ki Aloo Matar Chaat

You Will Need:
  • 2 large Potatoes - cubed
  • A handful of fresh green peas
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger.
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Amchur powder
  •  A pinch of Hing
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • Salt as per taste
  • fresh Coriander for Garnish
How To:
  • Boil green peas over the stove top or in a microwave until tender. Drain & set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a Kadhai, splutter cumin seeds. Add a dash of Hing & grated ginger. Saute for a few secs.
  • Add potato cubes, some salt & shallow fry in oil until crisp. Add all the dry powders one by one. Throw in boiled peads & fry for a couple of minutes until the flavours get absorbed.
  • Turn off the stove & serve along with tooth picks .. Add a dash of lemon juice if you like & garnish with fresh coriander

While I was making this, I didn't really expect it to be any different from the dry potato curry that we all make, But it was way different that that .. I would call it a cross between our Desi Pottao Fry & Potato Wedges from McDonalds ... But you will love it for sure ..
