Tikki Chole Chaat | Spicy Chaat recipes

Chaat is welcome in any form at my place. I had a batch of cooked and frozen chickpeas, and when my elder girl asked me to make something chatpata (spicy) on a rather lazy Sunday afternoon, I suggested that I make this. She was more than eager to help me assemble the chaat.

Although slightly tedious, this is very similar to the Ragda patties or the Dry Tikki Chaat.  The base instead of dried peas gravy is similar to the Chole (chickpeas gravy) served with Puri or Bhature.  Topped with sev , chutneys and a dash of yoghurt, this makes for a lip smacking and colourful chaat for any party or get together.  If you are bored of the same base, why don’t you try this delish and nutritious Oats Moong Tikki as the base for this chole chaat

Tikki Chole Chaat is a delicious street food combining tikki (potato patties, shallow fried) with a spicy-tangy chickpea curry. Served topped with onions and chutneyPin

I made this real quick as I always have a batch of cooked chickpeas (not canned) at home in my freezer. Click on the following video to learn how to prep a batch of cooked chickpeas that can be used in a jiffy.
