Indian chaat recipes are tongue tickling. All chaat recipes have combination of sweet, spicy and tangy flavors. And this aloo tikki chole is one of it. You will taste all these complex flavors in your mouth. Apart from lots of flavors, you will feel many different textures in your mouth. Like crispy sev, refreshing and crunchy onions, soft and mouth melting tikkis. yes it’s like heaven. To get the feel and taste of it, you will have to make it and try it.

Whenever I had aloo tikki chole at restaurants or stalls. Every time it has different taste. Because every stall has their own version of making chole gravy and aloo tikki. These two are the main elements of the dish.

Let’s go through the different elements of the aloo tikki chaat:

Aloo tikki – It has crispy outer layer. and soft inside texture. There are many ways of making aloo tikki. Many makes with only potatoes and spices. While some make stuffed tikki with chana dal mixture. Here I have added few green peas to add some nutrition. But you can skip the peas.

Punjabi chole – I always use the leftover chole. Once in a while I make extra chole to make this chaat next day. There are three chole recipes on the blog, Punjabi chole, no onion no garlic chole, chana masala in pressure cooker. You can choose one. All works fine. Or even you can use your own version of punjabi chole. Make sure to make chole spicy.

Chutneys – aloo tikki chole is topped with green chutney and meethi chutney. Green chutney is made from coriander leaves or mint leaves or combination of both, green chilies and ginger. This adds spicy flavor to the dish. Meethi chutney is made from tamarind, date and jaggery. It provides the sweet and tangy flavors to the dish.

Yogurt or dahi – Many prefers to add while many skip it. I like yogurt in my chaat recipes. It gives refreshing and cooling effect in your mouth.

Onion and tomato – gives fresh and crunchy effect.

Thin Sev – It is deep fried thin noodles made from besan or gram flour. You can make sev at home. Or buy from the store. I always use nylon sev.

At the end, you can sprinkle some chaat masala and finely chopped coriander leaves.
