Navratri Aloo Chaat and Chaas

Aloo chaat is one of the most common dishes which are made during the Navratri Festival. In general aloo chaat is quite famous among other chaats. It has crispy fried potatoes, tangy sauce and a mix of different spices. But during navratras, we are not allowed to have sour food. And there are only a few spices that we can use. So this recipe has been made keeping all the rules in mind.

This is one of my favourite Navratri recipes, requires very few ingredients. It is a simple and quick recipe. Crispy and crunchy fried potatoes tossed in tangy coriander chutney and spices.

Along with the aloo chaat, I am sharing a spiced or masala chaas recipe. It’s also very simple to put together. I hope you’ll find these recipes useful and will give it a try. Happy Cooking!
