Aloo Tikki Chaat(Potatoes pan fried and topped with a medley of ingredients for a lovely snack)!

This Chaat is so delicious that it can be had any time when you want to have a filling snack!The taste is unbeatable and it actually satiates your tastebuds.Initially this chaat was the favourite in North India but gradually it has become the favourite in the whole of India.

I have added Chana Masala to the potatoes as it gives a very delicious and tangy taste to the Tikki.However you can also add Garam Masala powder if desired.

Sharing the recipe gives me the greatest pleasure as this is one of the best things I love to eat!
