Chhole Tikki

I’m a big fan of street food, and I go crazy specially when I’m ordering any chat dish!!! That hot, sweet n sour taste all together in a single plate/bowl works wonderful to my palate :)You might have had a very famous ‘Aloo Chat’ many a times before… But try it by adding a new element cooked chickpeas in the dish! A lovely combo of Aloo Tikkis, Ragda with chickpeas and all tangy chutneys… Ummm, I started drooling now :Pchhole tikki
