Aloo Sev Chaat
A savoury snack with potatoes, crunchy sev and tangy chaat masala.
- Boil the potatoes in a pan of salted water, drain and leave to cool.
- Finely dice the onion, squeeze the lemon juice over it, and add a pinch of salt and sugar. Mix well and leave to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes.
- Cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks, then mix with the onion, fresh coriander and chaat masala (this has quite a strong flavour so try adding 1 tsp first and add more if needed).
- Mix through the sev just before serving (otherwise it will go soggy) and serve at room temperature.
"This is one of my favourite snacks to make. I like to finish it off with tamarind chutney (thinned down with a little water) and yoghurt. If you have leftover potatoes (I always make too many!) it can be rustled up in no time, but even made from scratch it's quick. I like to make the potato mixture and then portion it off, mixing in small amounts of sev as and when snack time calls!" - Ian
