Mumbai – indeed, all of India has an intense love affair with chaat. Chaat is made up of a variety of elements including potatoes, dahi, onions, coriander, sev and masala powder. There’re a multitude of permutations and combinations that you can use to make chaat. However, some traditional versions remain firm favourites; here are some of Mumbai’s preferred chaat variants. 

Aloo Chaat


Potatoes are chopped and fried in a large amount of hot oil and tossed with masala powder.
