Here’s presenting Kolkata style tikki chaat recipe. It is easy to cook Chaat. Even a novice cook can cook this recipe easily.

Aloo tikki chaat- a super delicious chatpata dish. I have used only pinch of oil, thus making it healthy.

Fried potato balls topped with sweet and tangy tamarind chutney is popular all over India.

This simple appetising snack that mainly originated in North India is now hugely popular all over India. I personally had this for the first time when I visited Varanasi in my school vacation. During our sight seeing trip, we skipped lunch but were hungry like rats rattling inside tummy. There we spotted a vendor selling something hot across street. On reaching closer we spotted potato balls all sizzling hot on a oven. Little me loved those balls topped with green and red chutney . Trust me the flavour is still tickling my tastebud.

This is the first time I tried this recipe at home. The preparation varies from kitchen to kitchen. This version is one that I indulged a while ago in our local chaat vendor. You can make it onion free. Also I haven’t used any filling just to make it simple. If you wish you can make filling of your choice like cholar dal or even paneer.

I keep chutney ready at home in case I am in mood for chaat eating. Will share the recipe of chutney soon.

Let’s start making this.


Better to use freshly boiled potatoes than frozen one. That makes the taste better.

I have used besan for binding. You can use rice flour or bread crumbs or even oats powder.


Peel off potatoes and boil them. Chop them into pieces.

Now put the spices – 1 tsp cumin powder and 1 tsp Salt and 1/4 tsp turmeric powder.Then mash everything together.

Potatoes with spices.

Add 6-8 spoon besan and start kneading again.

Make small balls or tikkis.

Time to drizzle oil in pan. Place the tikkis and fry them.

Prepare the curd. Take the curd in a bowl. Whisk it with 1 tsp of salt and sugar(tastewise). It’s ready for topping. Take the tikkis on a plate. Top it with curd and chutney. Sprinkle sev and it’s ready.
