When I started School, I had a group of friends, and we would always be together, we would sit together during the classes, play together, have lunch together and of course study together (but not so often!). Slowly and gradually the group grew bigger, the fun doubled and life and the universe revolved around us. We were happy being with each other...
There are so many fond memories...the silly little fights, quick patch-ups, copying home-work, sharing tiffin. I remember, we used to enjoy each others' tiffin and one of the favourites was this aloo chaat. We used to wait for lunch time at school, and before lunch we always knew who had what in their tiffin - and of course, the aloo chaaat was the first one to be attacked. This was a patent recipe of a friend's mom and we would finish the aloo chaat in a nano second and then crib, "why cant you get more?" :-) The taste of that delicious aloo chaat still lingers on my taste buds.
Today's recipe is dedicated to my long lost friend and her mom...I've tried to make it as good as she did, and hope I came close.
1/3 cup - coriander chutney (I also added some mint leaves to the chutney)
25 gram - jaggery (gud), grated (more or less)
2 tbsp - tamarind pulp (more or less)
5-6 - potatoes medium size, boiled and cut into slices
1/2 tsp - rock salt
2 tbsp - chaat masala
1/4 tsp - red chilli powder
1/2 tsp - cumin powder
salt to taste
coriander leaves to garnish
- Add everything in a bowl and mix lightly. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.
Enjoy and have a great weekend!
