Mix Veggie Aloo Tikki Chaat

Aloo tiki chaat is pretty famous as street food in North India. As the winters approach the stall for tikki chaat increases on the street. Regular Aloo Tikki, I have already discussed in Veg Burger recipe. I have made little variations here by using few seasonal veggies like cabbage, cauliflower, beans and peas. This makes the tikki nutritious and more tasty.

This tongue tickling chaat includes chana daal stuffed mix veggie spicy tikki with tangy tamarind and coriander mint chutney. I have shallow fried the tikkis, if desired you can deep fry for more crispness.
