Things to know about Aloo Chaat Recipe

Aloo Chaat is a signature street snack of India, made with a mixture of potatoes and spices. Popular throughout the Indian subcontinent, the dish is found on every street corner.

The word “Aloo” means “Potato” and the word “Chaat” is derived from the Hindi word “chaatna” which means to taste.

Chaat originated in Uttar Pradesh under the Mughal rule when Emperor Shah Jahan was asked by the royal doctors to consume spicy and fried snacks and curd as a countermeasure to the alkaline water of the river Yamuna. Different varieties of Chaat thus originated in Uttar Pradesh but are popular throughout the Indian subcontinent. The dish is very simple to prepare and quite cheap.
