Khati Meeti Alloo Chana

November 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

All over India, visitors and locals are greeted by the numerous street vendors selling the most delectable savoury snacks, sweets and the best chai. Whether you are in a major city or in the country side, it is extremely difficult to resist the fare that they have to offer. These dishes are prepared on the roadside in their carts with the freshest ingredients, a lot of passion and craftsmanship like you have never seen before. However when one embarks on a tour of India, you are always advised not to eat food from the street vendors, because one is not sure of how hygienic their surrounds and methods are, and with the growing popularity of “Mumbai Street Food” and the influx of international tourists, there are now food courts available in most malls selling all of these amazing dishes. I still believe that the experience of watching and eating a dish from an authentic street vendor is a “Must” when visiting India. The street food menu is vast and very often regional and seasonal. I am sharing the recipe for “Khati Meeti Alloo Channa” (translated into English means sour & sweet potato & chick peas) which one of many dishes that is available in the “street food menu”

Khati Meeti Alloo Chana

1 cup boiled and cubed and potatoes

  1. It sounds wonderful!! Great minds think alike, I have also used chickpeas in my last post! :)
    The link does not seem to work, however?

  2. Personally I love street food – I wish we could see more of it in our country

  3. When we lived in Singapore they also gave the same warnings, but the street vendors were the best places to eat!

  4. Keep blogging, lady. Your posts and recipes are WONDERFUL!
