Hasselback Aloo Chaat – Spicy Potatoes

Crispy on the edges and fluffy on the inside, this hasselback aloo chaat is a delicious appetizer. Tangy and sweet from a homemade chaat masala, fresh radishes, and pickled onions, there’s no better treat for your taste buds than these spicy potatoes!

A hasselback cut is a perfect choice for chaats because they allow the flavor to seep deep inside the potatoes. All that tangy, spicy, sweet goodness is then evenly distributed all throughout the potato, making for an even more delicious meal! This chaat is almost like a twist on a typical Delhi style potato chaat because instead of frying the potatoes, we’ve just baked them to achieve that super crispy texture.

The real stars of the show, though, are our homemade chaat masala and toppings. The freshness of the spices really helps to amplify all those flavors and just bring the dish to life! Top it all of with some radishes and pickled onions and serve it with a mint cilantro chutney, and you’ve got an appetizer that’s sure to turn heads at your next backyard party!

HOW TO MAKE HASSELBACK ALOO CHAAT:
  1. Cut the Potatoes! Wash and dry the potatoes and cut them hasselback style. Hasselback potatoes are potatoes that are cut into many thin slices but not quite all the way through, they are still connected at the bottom. Place a potato on the cutting board between two chopsticks. Then slice the potato into 1/4 inch think slices, the chopstick will prevent you from going all the way through.
  2. Marinate! Make the marinade together in a small bowl by mixing the salt, butter, ginger, garlic, oil, and mint. Brush the marinade onto the potatoes, making sure it gets in between each slice for maximum flavor.
  3. Bake! Place the potatoes in an oven- safe dish. Then, bake for 15 minutes uncovered, followed by 20 minutes covered with foil, and then uncovered for as long as it takes for the potatoes to be golden brown and fork tender.
  4. Mix and Garnish! Toss the potatoes with half of the garnishes (radish, pickled onions, fresh mint, cilantro, thai red chilies, chaat masala, lemon juice) and top with the tamarind chutney.
  5. Enjoy! Serve the aloo chaat with the rest of the garnishes and some mint cilantro chutney on the side so people can add as much of them as they’d like!Crispy on the edges and fluffy on the inside, this hasselback potato chaat (Delhi style) is a delicious appetizer.

Ingredients
  • 16 baby potatoes , sliced hasselback style
Marinade:
  • 2 tbsp butter , melted
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic , minced
  • 1 tsp ginger , minced
  • 1 tsp dried mint
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Homemade Chaat Masala:
Garnish:
  • 1 1/2 tbsp tamarind chutney
  • 2 tbsp cilantro , chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh mint , chopped
  • 1/2 cup radish , shredded
  • 1/2 cup pickled onions , cut into rings
  • 2 tsp Thai red chilies or green chilies , finely sliced
  • lemon juice , to taste
  • chaat masala , to taste
Accompaniment:
  • mint cilantro chutney
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F/205°C.

  2. Wash and dry the potatoes and cut them hasselback style. Hasselback potatoes are potatoes that are cut into many thin slices but not quite all the way through, they are still connected at the bottom.

    How to cut a potato hasselback style: Place a potato on the cutting board between two chopsticks. Then slice the potato into 1/4 inch think slices, the chopstick will prevent you from going all the way through.

  3. Make the marinade together in a small bowl by mixing the salt, butter, ginger, garlic, oil, and mint. If your butter is salted, be careful of how much salt you add because the masalas and chutneys we will put on later also contain salt.

  4. Place the potatoes in an oven- safe dish and brush them with the marinade, making sure to get the marinade into the cuts to maximize flavor. Bake for 15 minutes uncovered, followed by 20 minutes covered with foil, and then uncovered for as long as it takes for the potatoes to be golden brown and fork tender.

  5. To make the homemade chaat masala, mix together all of the ingredients. You will not use all of it, so simply use it as needed and store the remainder in an air tight container. If you'd prefer to not make the spice bled yourself, you can simply use a store-bought chaat masala.

  6. To serve, toss the potatoes with half of the garnishes and top with the tamarind chutney. Keep the rest of the garnishes and some mint cilantro chutney on the side so people can add as much of them as they'd like. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • If you want to make these potatoes ahead of time, you can half bake them up to a day before. When serving, give them a quick mix and let them finish baking. Garnish with all the toppings and serve!

HOW TO MAKE PITA BREAD:
  1. Make the Dough! Mix together the lukewarm water, yeast, and 1 tsp of the sugar. Let the mixture sit until the yeast blooms and the mixture looks bubbly on the top. In a stand mixer or bowl, add in the salt, flour, and remaining sugar. Whisk the dry ingredients until combined and then add in the yeast mixture, yogurt, and extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Knead the Dough! Knead the dough by hand for 8-10 minutes until it is soft and slightly sticky to the touch. You might need to add a little more water or flour based on how wet or dry your dough turns out to be. Be sure to knead by hand for at least 10 minutes and not use the stand mixer because you won’t get that fluffy texture otherwise.
  3. First Dough Rise! Shape the dough into a ball by tucking its sides underneath and transfer to a well-oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a towel or some plastic wrap and let the dough sit for about 2 hours until it doubles in size.
  4. Second Dough Rise! After the dough has risen, transfer it from the bowl out onto a clean work surface and divide it into 8-12 balls. Cover these with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise for another 20 minutes. While the dough is rising for the second time, preheat the oven to 500°F / 260°C
  5. Roll and Bake! Roll the balls out into pitas that are evenly about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Place them onto a parchment lined baking tray and bake for 5-8 minutes until fluffy and golden brown. Make sure to keep an eye on them, though, because as soon as they puff up, take them out or they will become hard and dry out. Cool on a wire-rack for 10 minutes before serving. For best results, bake the pitas in two batches.
  6. Enjoy! Savor these pitas with some homemade falafel, hummus, and a quick salad for a delicious meal!Deliciously soft and tender, these homemade Pita Breads are nothing short of heavenly!

Servings: 12 pcs
Calories: 96 kcal
Author: Nidhi Bothra
Ingredients
  • 3 3/4 cup all purpose flour , or bread flour
  • 3/4 cup water , more if needed
  • 2 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup yogurt , full fat
  • 3 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil , more for greasing
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp sugar
Instructions
  1. Proof the yeast: In a mixing bowl, mix together the lukewarm water, yeast, and 1 tsp of the sugar. Let the mixture sit until the yeast blooms and the mixture looks bubbly on the top.

  2. Prepare the dough: In a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment, or a large mixing bowl, add in the salt, flour, and remaining sugar. Whisk the dry ingredients until combined and then add in the yeast mixture, yogurt, and extra virgin olive oil.

  3. Knead the dough: Knead the dough by hand for 10-12 minutes until the dough is soft and slightly sticky to the touch. You might need to add a little more water or flour based on how wet or dry your dough turns out to be. Be sure to knead by hand for at least 10 minutes and not use the stand mixer because you won't get that fluffy texture otherwise.

  4. First dough rise: Shape the dough into a ball by tucking its sides underneath and transfer to a well-oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a towel or some plastic wrap and let the dough sit for about 2 hours until it doubles in size.

  5. Second dough rise: After the dough has risen, transfer it from the bowl out onto a clean work surface and divide it into 8-12 same sized balls. Cover these with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise for another 20 minutes.

  6. Preheat the oven: While the dough is rising for the second time, preheat the oven to 500°F / 260°C.

  7. Roll: Once the dough has risen, roll the balls out into pitas that are evenly about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

  8. Bake: Place them onto a parchment lined baking tray and bake for 5-8 minutes until fluffy and golden brown. Make sure to keep an eye on them, though, because as soon as they puff up, take them out or they will become hard and dry out. Cool on a wire-rack for 10 minutes before serving. For best results, bake the pitas in two batches.

  9. Serve these pitas with some homemade falafel, hummus, and a quick salad for a delicious lunch!

Recipe Notes
  • The oven temperature has to be very hot in order for them to puff up, so after your first batch if the oven temperature has dropped, let it come back up to temperature before baking the next batch.
  • I needed to use about 3 tbsp more water to achieve the desired consistency using bread flour.
  • For the yeast blooming, make sure not to use old yeast or use water that is too hot or cold. Lukewarm water works best for this step.
  • Yogurt, although not usually found in a pita recipe, imparts a very faint tangy flavor and helps the pita become very soft and tender.
  • To make sure that each pita is the same size, it's best to weigh the balls when you're dividing the dough so they're equal.

Sabudana — otherwise known as tapioca or sago — has been increasingly gaining popularity outside of India as a superfood. Packed with minerals, gluten-free, and a great regulator of blood flow to your brain and heart, there’s no doubt that it’s a filling carb to start off your day!

This dish is quite similar to a sabudana vada, but by adding paneer and cheese with potato and serving it as a waffle instead of frying, it’s modern dish that is sure to turn heads at the dining table or even at parties (whenever we get back to that again). The combination of tangy spices like chaat masala and crispy vegetables makes for a perfect breakfast meal!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cup potatoes , boiled and grated
  • 1 cup paneer or cottage cheese , grated
  • 2/3 cup sabudana (tapioca or sago pearls)
  • 1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs , takes 2 bread slices
  • 1/4 cup bell peppers , diced
  • 1 tbsp green chilies , minced
  • 1 tbsp ginger , minced
  • 2 tbsp carrots , finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup peanuts , coarsely crushed
  • 1/4 cup cheese , shredded
  • 2 tbsp cilantro , chopped
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 red chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp chaat masala
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • lemon juice , to taste
  • salt , to taste
  • oil or butter for greasing
Instructions
  1. To make the breadcrumbs, simply blend 2 slices of bread in the food processor until it becomes a coarse powder. You don’t need to toast or bake the bread for this recipe.
  2. Rinse the sabudana pearls in cold water, for 3-4 times until the water is clear and all starch is rinsed off. Soak them in a wide bowl for 3 to 4 hours with enough water to just cover them. They should absorb the water and double in size. After soaking, gently press them and check that they are not hard from inside, because that means they need to be soaked for longer. Now drain them completely and spread them on a kitchen towel till they are totally dry.

  3. Mix all of the ingredients with the sabudana pearls and adjust the seasoning to your taste, ensuring that the mixture is evenly combined.

  4. Heat your waffle maker and liberally grease both the top and bottom. Once heated, use a spoon and your hand to gently press the mixture into the waffle maker and then close and and cook as per the instructions of your waffle maker. Mine took about 8-10 minutes to become nice and golden brown.

  5. Once it’s finished cooking, cool the waffle down on a wire rack to help it become crispy and serve warm with your choice of sauces. It goes great with sour cream or mint chutney! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • The homemade breadcrumbs really help to bind the waffle together and help it crisp up. Homemade ones, made with 2 slices of bread that are simply pulsed in the food processor, are definitely better than store-bought ones. If you don’t want to add breadcrumbs, replace it with 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch.
  • If you don't have a waffle maker, you can simply use a panini or sandwich press, use that instead. Alternatively, you can just make it in a pan like cutlets.

Ingredients
Salad:
  • 2 cups salad greens
  • 1 cup chickpeas (garbanzo beans) , rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup couscous , cooked
  • 1/2 cup black olives , sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes , diced
  • 1/2 cup cucumber , chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onions , chopped
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese , crumbled
Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp mustard sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • salt , to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients until well combined.

  2. For the salad, mix together all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and toss together with the dressing. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • Feel free to use any salad greens you’d like! I used a mix of arugula, spinach, Swiss chard, and lettuce.
  • If you don’t have any of these ingredients, any vegetable or protein source will pair well with the dressing and taste great!
  • If you’re looking to go vegan, simply omit the feta cheese and enjoy!
  • If you don't have red wine vinegar then use 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1 tbsp lemon zest instead of 1/4 cup red wine vinegar. This will make a delicious lemon vinaigrette!

Ingredients
Popsicle:
  • 2 1/2 cups green mango , peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup raisins , soaked in warm water for 30 mins
  • 1 cup mint , fresh and lightly packed
  • 3 1/2 cup water , based on pulp of mango
  • honey , as needed
  • 2 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp black salt
  • salt , to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • lemon juice , optional for tartness
Garnish:
Instructions
Instant Pot:
  1. In an Instant Pot, add the green mangoes, drained raisins, and 1/2 cup of water. Put the lid on and seal the vent. Pressure cook for 5 minutes on high in manual mode and then quick release it. I used the 3 quart instant pot, but if you are using the 6 quart one, it should only take 3 minutes.

  2. Let the mixture cool and come to room temperature and blend it with the mint, spices, and another 1/2 cup of water.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl and add in the remaining water. Be careful not to add all the water at once because we want the consistency to be a little thicker. Instead, add the water gradually and stir constantly, adjusting the water content based on the pulp of your mango.
  4. Add in the honey. If your mangoes aren’t very sour, feel free to add some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Keep the seasoning on the higher side because they tend to mellow out after freezing.
  5. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and insert the popsicle sticks. I would recommend soaking the popsicle sticks for a few hours prior, to make them heavier and help them stand straight in the mold. Freeze them for 6-8 hours in the freezer.
  6. Mix together your garnish ingredients and lightly sprinkle the popsicle with the spices before serving! Enjoy!
Stovetop:
  1. Add the green mangoes, drained raisins, and 1/2 cup of water into your pressure cook. Cook for 2 whistles, with one whistle on high heat and another on medium. Let the pressure naturally release.
  2. Let the mixture cool and come to room temperature and blend it with the mint, spices, and another 1/2 cup of water.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl and add in the remaining water. Be careful not to add all the water at once because we want the consistency to be a little thicker. Instead, add the water gradually and stir constantly, adjusting the water content based on the pulp of your mango.
  4. Add in the honey. If your mangoes aren’t very sour, feel free to add some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Keep the seasoning on the higher side because they tend to mellow out after freezing.
  5. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and insert the popsicle sticks. I would recommend soaking the popsicle sticks for a few hours prior, to make them heavier and help them stand straight in the mold. Freeze them for 6-8 hours in the freezer.
  6. Mix together your garnish ingredients and lightly sprinkle the popsicle with the spices before serving! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
  • Don’t strain your mango mixture after cooking it because the fibers add flavor to the popsicles. It would also become very thin.
  • If you want to use a microwave instead of a pressure cooker or instant pot, simply add the mangoes, raisins, and 1/2 cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 3-4 minutes, based on your microwave temperature. The mangoes should be fork tender before blending.

No Knead Multiseed Bread - easy to make, nutritious bread that requires no kneading. With a moist interior, crunch from the seeds (flax, chia, hemp, sesame), and lots of fiber, try this homemade dutch oven bread.

No-Knead Multiseed Bread

Featuring a crispy crust and a soft, chewy texture, this No-Knead Multiseed Bread is ridiculously easy to make! It’s dotted with various seeds and packed with fiber to make for a healthy, and delicious bread!

This requires no kneading and takes very little effort. Instead of having to knead this bread like you typically would, by simply letting the sticky dough sit for 10-12 hours, the gluten develops by itself. The long, 10 hour fermentation with low yeast content creates a dough with bubbles on top after it doubles in size for that perfect texture! Baked in an enameled cast iron pot like a Dutch oven that keeps the heat evenly distributed, the crust becomes gorgeously golden brown and super crispy!

Now this isn’t a new innovation by any means, but this version is my take on it using my favorite seeds and flavors. I used a mix of chia, flax, hemp, sesame, and sunflower seeds to get the most crunch and nutty flavor. The seeds are full of fiber, healthy fats, and are great to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol!

Perfect as a slice of toast with some silky homemade herb butter or as a sandwich with some fresh greens and mozzarella, this no knead bread is the easiest bread you’ll ever make!

Servings: 16 slices in 1 loaf
Calories: 95 kcal
Author: Nidhi Bothra
Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour , or straight flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats , plus extra for topping
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 tbsp white sesame seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 tsp flax seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 tsp chia seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds , plus extra for topping
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 cup water , at room temperature
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, yeast, seeds, salt, and oats until well combined. Gradually pour in the water and mix until the dough is evenly mixed and a soft wet sticky dough starts to form. You may have to adjust how much water you add in case it’s too dry.

  2. Cover the bowl with some plastic wrap and let rest overnight or for at least 8-10 hours. Make sure to keep it in a dry, room temperature place.

  3. After the dough has proofed, sprinkle some flour onto a clean surface and gently scrape the dough out. Fold the corners of the dough inside to form a ball shape.

  4. Dust a piece of parchment paper with some flour and oats and transfer the dough to it. Sprinkle the dough with the mixed seeds and gently press them onto the dough to prevent them from falling out. Cover with a cotton towel and let rest for 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 425°F / 215°C and place a 4-6 quart heavy bottomed covered pot in the oven until the oven heats up.

  6. Once the dough has proofed, take the pot out of the oven and carefully place the dough and parchment paper in the pot. Put the pot back in the oven and bake covered for 30 minutes and then 10-15 minutes uncovered until golden brown.

    No Knead Multiseed Bread - easy to make, nutritious bread that requires no kneading. With a moist interior, crunch from the seeds (flax, chia, hemp, sesame), and lots of fiber, try this homemade dutch oven bread.
  7. You can enjoy the bread warm, but let it cool down for at least 1 hour before slicing it - the slices will turn out perfect.

  8. This bread has no preservatives, so store it in a fridge after two days.

Recipe Notes
  • You can use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour for a healthier bread.
  • I baked the bread in an enameled cast iron pot, also called a Dutch oven. A bake-safe glass bowl works perfectly fine as well, just use aluminum foil as the covering. It may cook faster because the bowl is thinner, so keep an eye on it.
  • If your oven isn’t as large or you don’t have a large enough bowl for the whole dough, you can simply divide the dough in half and bake in batches. Keep the half you’re not baking first, covered in a kitchen towel to prevent it from dying out.
  • If you want to make the dough into two loaves instead of one large one, you can simply divide the dough in half and bake them next to each in a large baking dish with foil as the covering. Or, if you have large enough Dutch oven, simply use that.
  • You can use any seeds of your choice. They’ll all work great in this recipe!
