The operator of the shop said that the thing he cares about the most is purity. According to them, they take care of whatever raw material they bring. Curd-chutney potato is exactly what he wants to feed his family. Lala ji has potato fries here, and aloo tikki ki chaat makes you cool.

History of ChaatTalking about the history of Chaat, it is derived from Uttar Pradesh. From Benares to Lucknow, you will find one type of chaat. Potato tikki, peas, papadis, dahi bhale and what kind of chat are available in different cities of UP. This chat spread across Delhi and then across the country, including Banaras, Lucknow and Agra.
Actually, when Shah Jahan made up his mind to make the capital Delhi, then the Raja Hakimas warned about the water here. When they did not agree, then it was suggested that the effect of water can be reduced by the consumption of desi ghee, spicy spices and curd. Then, when this is the case, what can be better than licking. Thus the chaat reached Delhi in a royal manner. However, if you are fond of eating chaat then eat it once, it will make you feel sure to come again.
