Baked Aloo (Potatoes) Chaat | Easy Navaratri Recipe

Delhi is famous for all kinds of food, specially chaat, papdi, tikki┬áand gol┬ágappas :). Among this list is one of my favorite dish -Delhi Aloo Chaat, during navaratri┬áaloo chaat and fruit chaat┬áare both in high demand at my place. I miss Delhi┬áChaat┬ávery much here, which I use to eat quite often in A Block Connaught Place my favorite among all aloo chaat’s┬áI have tried, there are times when you really crave for the food you love and have grown up eating. I love having chaat┬áand Delhi┬áis the place for it…. I can simply go on and on with the list of places where we get excellent chaat in Delhi :).

Baked Aloo Chaat Navaratri Recipe

I tried making my aloo chaat similar to the chaat I use to have in Delhi but the only difference is that this time I baked the aloo (potatoes) instead of deep-frying them.

What I got was crisp aloo’s straight from the oven, they┬álooked yum, and┬á I will say for this dish – Easy, Simple and with less ingredients you will be able to satisfy your stomach – chatpati┬áaloo chaat :)!

So here I am sharing with you all an all time easy and simple recipe of Delhi Aloo Chaat.

Baked Aloo (Potatoes) Chaat | Easy Navaratri Recipe

Baked Aloo (Potatoes)  Chaat | Easy Navaratri Recipe


  • ÔÇó Potatoes ÔÇô 3 medium size (washed & peeled)
  • ÔÇó Salt, Chilli Powder, cumin powder, chaat masala or else dry mango powder ÔÇô As per taste ( depending on how hot you want your chaat to be )
  • ÔÇó Lemon Juice ÔÇô 1 lime
  • ÔÇó Tamarind Chutney
  • ÔÇó Green Mint Chutney (if fasting then without onions, else regular mint chutney)
  • ÔÇó Coriander leaves chopped to garnish


  1. Dice the potatoes into small cubes and put oil on our palms and rub the potato cubes gently.
  2. Now place them in the pre heated oven at 200 degrees C for approx. 30 minutes, occasionally turning carefully with the help of a long spatula.
  3. You can keep them for 10 minutes more if you want real crisp.
  4. When done, remove them from the oven tray in a mixing bowl.
  5. Add in potatoes, all dry spices as per your taste, both mint & tamarind chutneys, lemon juice and mix well again.
  6. Serve hot and spicy!
  7. You can alternatively also deep fry these potatoes until golden brown in colour and add the spices the similar way we added for baked alooÔÇÖs. (In delhi it is mainly deep fried aloo chaat)

Enjoy the festive season with all the varieties of dishes at home with your loved ones :)!

This is seriously making me starving. I made coriander chutney yesterday without garlic with one of gujarati recipe. I will probably try this tonight. Looks so tempting…

Which potatoes did you use for this recipe? Russet, Yukon etc.?

Hi Anuradha, I used Yukon chopped into small size whereas russet can also be used for making this chaat. Cheers!
