Healthy Aloo channa chaat recipe

Chaat is a favourite at home. We all enjoy it and I do try to make it quite often with whatever ingredients I have in hand. So there is nothing of a compulsion except for a few ingredients which are readilly available. You can just proceed with whatever you have like puffed rice, store bought chiwda, sev,boondi, peanuts ,spicy dals. Mix them with onion and tomatoes. Pour in some sauces and chutneys and your chaat is ready.

Masala lemon rice recipe

This is a very easy recipe and its my go to recipe whenever I don’t have much time for cooking. This does not really require any side dish as such though you can serve a side dish of your choice if you like it that way. Papads or chips should be a good choice to serve with too!

I had made a mint pulao without using onion and garlic once for a get together…
