Aloo Paneer Chat
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 15 minutes
3 cups paneer (cottage cheese, chopped into cubes)
2 cups baby potatoes, boiled
25 mm. (1″) piece ginger
5 to 6 green chilies, finely chopped
2 tbsp chaat masala
Juice of 1 lemon
5 to 6 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
FOR THE GARNISH
1/4 cup chopped coriander
We will now prepare Aloo Paneer chaat.
The ingredients for Aloo paneer Chaat are green peas, paneer, aloo, lemon juice, ginger, chaat masala, green chillies and salt.
We’ll take a pan and pour 2 teaspoon oil in it. Spread the oil by lifting up the pan and very gently moving it.
Put cottage cheese cubes into the pan.
Fry it till it turns golden brown, while gently stirring.
When it turns golden brown, take it on a plate.
Keep a tissue paper on the plate before you add cottage cheese, such that the tissue paper soaks the oil.
Now in the same pan, we could put the potatoes. You may choose to put some oil as well, if required.
Stir these as you fry, right until the baby potatoes turn reddish brown.
Now we’ll take them in a plate. The plate would have a tissue paper over it, so as to soak the oil.
Keep the baby potatoes boiled before you start, such that these fry quickly.
We will now add ginger to the pan, spread it nicely and then add green peas.
We can then saute it slightly.
Next, we add chaat masala to the mixture, followed by green chilli and lime juice.
We’ll saute the mixture further.
Then we’ll add fried baby potatoes that we had put aside to the mixture.
This would now be ready in very little time. We can turn off the gas.
Then, we’ll add cottage cheese cubes to the mixture. Mix well.
Now, we’ll add salt to taste.
We can now take this in a bowl.
The Aloo Paneer Chat is now ready to be served.
