Chole Tikki Chaat |Chole Aloo Tikki Chaat | How to make Aloo Tikki Chaat

Chaat Recipes

Chaats always my fav , no street food can beat Indian spicy chaat corners. I and husband love to have any chaat it might be, one of our recent fav is Chole tikki chaat . I thought of trying it at home and we just couldn't stop us from digging in. There many variation of Chole chaat with samosa, kachoris, even masala vadai i have tried and even with Tikki . Chaats look so simple but there is so many ingredients to be included makes it delicious. Even though the process might be long when it comes to chaat this is a very simple dish to cook. This is one among the popular street food, some tikki  are made with a filling  for this chaat which taste yummier even but i made a simple version. Lets quickly move the chaat recipe.
