Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

Chana chaat is similar to raita, but it’s not. I love chana chaat because the heat from the spices contrasted with the yoghurt in this chana chaat recipe is the perfect combination. A lot of people don’t actually add yoghurt, but I personally prefer to add it. I sometimes even have it on top of my pilau rice instead of raita, so I like that touch of yoghurt. I have to rate the people that have their own homemade chaat masala mix. I just use the Shan chaat masala. I might try to attempt a chaat masala recipe in the future, but we shall see how life goes.

This aloo chaat recipe is the perfect Pakistani chana chaat recipe and I have seen plenty of Pakistanis make it like this. This chaat recipe can be put together very quickly and can be done on the side whilst preparing other dishes. A chaat masala recipe that is full of spicy flavour. I like to have this chaat really cold, but you can have it warm if you choose to.

This chana chaat recipe isn’t as traditional as the others as there is no tamarind sauce in it. You can add some for some tangy flavour. I usually add tamarind chutney when I make my samosa chaat. I feel like it is a really good partner with the samosa, and it adds a lot more depth to the dish. This chana chaat recipe tastes absolutely delicious with and without tamarind sauce.

If you have never made dahi chaat before, this is the recipe for you.
