Alu Kabli/ Aloo chat

Street foods are always tempting everyone's
taste buds and makes you drool when you view
it at roadside chaat stalls. Aloo Kabli or aloo
chaat is one of the famous Bengali chaats which
is easily available on roadside chaat stall served
specially in a dry leaf bowl. It actually reminds me of my childhood days when I was not allowed to eat chaat or other roadside food as chaats are junk food made unhygienically but we could never resist ourselves from having a bowl of aloo kabli at our neighborhood chaat stall.Even now when I get a glimpse of it anywhere I cant restrict my temptation to have it right away. I prepare this chaat most often for my kid without adding chili as she also likes this very much.

Aloo Kabli is an amazing hot and tangy combination made of potato and chana (Black gram) with the aroma of Green chili mixed with lemonjuice and fresh coriander leaves.
