Sweet Potato Chaat

Bite-size pieces of sweet potato, fruits and vegetables tossed generously with lemon juice, green chutney and chaat masala. The tanginess of lemon juice and the spicy kick of chaat masala balances the sweetness of sweet potatoes.

Sweet Potato Chaat commonly known as  Shakarkandi ki Chaat is very popular winter street food in North India. Street vendors sell charcoal-grilled sweet potatoes mixed with spices and lemon juice. I have added fruits and cucumber to this chaat to make it colourful & appetizing as well as to create a balance of textures; needless to say, they take the nutritional value of this chaat to the next level.

Recipe Tips:

  • Green chutney recipe can be found here.
  • Chop the fruits while the sweet potato is getting cooked. This will allow you to serve the sweet potato while it is warm.
  • Adjust the cooking time according to the size of sweet potatoes. If they are small in size, pressure cook for 2 whistles or cook for lesser time if using any other cooking method like baking or steaming. The sweet potato should be soft but not mushy.
