TAPIOCA AND POTATO CHAT
Hello and welcome friends once again. Today I’ll be sharing a chat recipe made from tapioca and potato along with other ingredients which can make a great snack to be had in brunch or evenings with a drink of your choice. It’s super easy to prepare and is hassle-free, only thing is after making, it must be consumed in time to avoid it becoming mushy. So let’s start making it—
- Tapioca – 250 gms.
- Potato – 100 gms.
- Apple(finely chopped) – 1.
- Pomegranate Seeds – 2 tbsp.
- Green chilies – 3.
- Black Salt and White Salt- As required.
- Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
- Cashew nuts and peanuts – 1/2 cup.
- Chaat Masala – 1 tsp.
- Chopped Coconut – 2 tbsp.
- Gram Flour or Besan Sev – 1/2 cup.
- Lemon Juice – 2 tsp.
- Sweet tomato sauce – 1 tsp.
- Green chilly sauce – 1 tsp.
- Green Chutney – 3 tbsp.
- Coriander leaves(finely chopped) – A handful.
- Vegetable Oil -For shallow frying.
Wash, scrape and cut the tapioca(kachalu)and potato in medium-sized pieces and blanch it for three minutes in a saucepan adding a pinch of white salt. The tapioca and the potatoes must be par-boiled but should stay firm. Do not blanch them in a pressure cooker as they may get mushy. Take them out in a sieve and let them dry up.
Take a wok and add vegetable oil to it. Now when the oil gets hot, drop in the above-blanched ingredients and deep fry them on medium heat. Take them out when they are slightly golden browned. Drain out on a tissue paper to remove excess oil. You may shallow fry them also as per your choice as it sure would be a better option, but here I have deep fried them.
In the same oil add the chopped green chilies, cashew nuts, peanuts and fry them for two minutes. Take it out.
Now assemble the fried tapioca, potatoes on a plate, add the fried chilies, cashew, and peanuts. Add chopped apples and pomegranate seeds and chopped coconut. Now mix in the red chilly powder, lemon juice, sweet tomato sauce, green chilly sauce, chaat masala and black salt. Now add some green chutney made of coriander and mint on it, some chopped coriander and sprinkle some gram flour or besan sev. Toss everything well. In addition to the given ingredients for the recipe, you can add any kinds of chopped fruits, nuts, dips and sauces to this chaat according to your taste. It’s tasty, healthy.
For making the green chutney you’ll need –
- Coriander – A small bunch.
- Mint – A small bunch.
