Equipment

  • Pressure cooker
  • Mixing bowl

Ingredients
  

Ingredients:

  • 6 baby potatoes or 2 large potatoes
  • 1 cup white peas cook separately
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 small tomato
  • 1 carrot medium size
  • ¾ tsp Chaat masala
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • ¼ tsp Amchoor masala
  • ¾ tsp salt as needed
  • ½ lemon
  • Coriander leaves optional
  • ½ cup bhujia or mixture

Instructions
 

Preparation:

  • Boil potatoes in a pressure cooker or open pot Al-dente. Do not cook until mush.
  • I used baby potatoes and cooked for two whistles in a small pressure pan. For normal potatoes, one whistle may be enough based on your cooker type.
  • Remove the peel and keep ready.
  • Also, cook soaked dry white peas. I cooked the peas along with potatoes by keeping soaked matar(peas) in an inner vessel inside the cooker.
  • Chop onion, tomato, coriander leaves and grate the carrot.

Recipe:

  • In a mixing bowl, take boiled potatoes and mash them slightly.
  • Add boiled white peas. I used dried white matar, cooked after soaking them for four hours.
  • Put chopped onion, tomato and grated carrot.
  • Add Chaat masala powder, some chilli powder, amchoor powder and salt.
  • Few fresh lemon drops and gram mixture or bhujia(ompodi) just before serving. I like to use a spicy mixture instead of bhujia for the crunchy peanuts in the besan mixture.
  • Mix everything together and serve as a salad or Chaat with any kind of tangy or sweet chutney.
  • You can also add chopped coriander leaves.

Notes

Tips:
1) If you want to serve this as a proper chaat, you can top it with any sweet-sour chutney or peas/potato gravy.
2) As an alternative to dried white peas, you can use green peas also.
