Street foods are one of the best parts of traveling and creating experiences! Have you ever tried Aloo chaat from Delhi? It is AWESOME. Boiled and then deep-fried succulent potatoes, sprinkled with fragrant salty- spicy flavors, adorned with some cilantro and mint chutney. But once you are far away at home what’s a pining heart to do when you can’t find the same kinds of flavors that you grew up eating? Well, you attempt to make it! This Aloo Chaat – Air Fryer Spicy Delhi Aloo Chaat is my attempt to make a heathier version of deep-fried aloo chaat.

How do we make Aloo Chaat – Air Fryer Spicy Delhi Aloo Chaat?

Traditionally the potatoes are boiled and then deep-fried. However, I have attempted to make a healthier version in an air fryer.

Step 1 to make Aloo Chaat – Air Fryer Spicy Delhi Aloo Chaat: 

First, rinse and peel the potatoes. Secondly, dice them into 2 – inch thick cubes. Dice the potatoes evenly, this will ensure that all potatoes are uniformly cooked and browned.

Step 2: 

When you are ready to cook, grease your  Air Fryer  basket with 1 tsp oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, a little bit of oil on the bottom grate. Then, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 400°F for 3 minutes. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the potatoes in a single layer. Air fry for 15 minutes at 400, stopping and shaking the basket 2-3 times throughout to promote even cooking. Rub about 1/2 tsp  additional oil on the potatoes.

You’ll know the potatoes are done when they have a nice golden-brown color on the outside and they can be effortlessly stabbed with a fork. If you don’t want to super brown you can reduce the temperature to 12 minutes instead of 15 however, I like mine browned.

Step 3: 

Meanwhile, when your potatoes are getting air fried, dry roast cumin seeds in a pan on medium heat until nice and fragrant. They can burn quickly so make sure not to burn them. Once they cool down grind them in a coffee blender or a spice mixer. You can use store bought roasted ground cumin too. Further, in a mixing bowl, add in lemon juice, roasted ground cumin, dried mint, chaat masala, black salt, red chili powder, ground pepper and oil. Mix well.

Step 4:

Additionally, make the chutney. For the chutney blend fresh cilantro, dried mint, serrano pepper, black salt and water.

Step 5: 

Once the potatoes are ready mix them when they are hot in the mixing bowl with the spice mix. Transfer them to a serving bowl and top with chutney.

Notes

You can use store bought roasted ground cumin. I didn’t have roasted cumin so I dry roasted the seeds and ground them.
If using store bought roasted ground cumin use 2 tsps of it.
If you don’t have black salt you can use regular salt.
