Here is my tamarind sauce recipe: Sweet Tamarind

Mix together all the channa chaat ingredients in a bowl. Taste and adjust flavours according to your preference. You can serve this warm or at room temperature. I love using this as a filling for my gol gappay recipe found HERE.




Hey Fauzia,
Love all your recipes.
Just to confirm, is it better to boil the potato before dicing them or to dice the potato and then boil?

Hi Hina and thank you! Either way works, but I find it easier to peel, chop then boil the potatoes. They get done faster (coz they are tinier) and tend to hold their shape more neatly.
