Hariyali Aloo Chaat (Dhaniya Aloo)

Hariyali Aloo Chaat, a savory -chatpati  chaat of boiled potatoes coated with hot-tangy coriander/cilantro blend which is making it to look greener (hara/hariyali).Hariyali Aloo Chaat (Dhaniya Aloo)

Sounds of word “Chaat” itself makes one to drool. And when whether is mildly cold, relishing a hot savory chaat like hot-tangy Hariyali Aloo Chaat becomes an unmatched delish experience. I was enjoying it on the same mild chilly evening with infrequent sips of masala chai in between which were making it even more pleasurable.

You might worry at times that you have a huge coriander lot in your refrigerator which you have not used in any other form except garnishing and is going to wilt & get spoiled soon. Then, you can use it in this chaat which involves just a minor of cooking, just boiling (of potatoes) & is fat-free (no oil) too.  With fresh condiments & few other spices, this chaat with simple recipe acquires mouth-watering flavor.Hariyali Aloo Chaat (Dhaniya Aloo)

Again if you want some other recipe that can help you utilizing your coriander leaves is a Chutney recipe named Chatpati Chutney. Soon, I am going to share another recipe of coriander which will be a main dish. But for now let’s enjoy this Chaat:
