Put everything in a blender and blend it until smooth.

Sweetened Yogurt

Mix all together in a bowl and chill it.


Peel the Potatoes and cut them potatoes into 1inch cubes and keep them in the cold water to avoid discolouring. Put a pot of water on high heat and put loads of salt in it until the water tastes salty, bring the water to boil and put the potato cubes in it and cook them for 3 mins on medium heat.

After 3 minutes drain the potatoes into a colander and chill them in the fridge at least 2 hours. Now heat the oil to 160o C and carefully fry the potatoes in the oil until potatoes are soft, once soft take them out and set them aside and heat the oil to 190oC and fry the potatoes for 30-40 seconds or until crispy and take them out and season them chaat masala and salt.

To Plate

In a small bowl put hand full of fried potatoes to follow 2 tablespoons of yoghurt, 2 teaspoons of tamarind sauce, some coriander chutney and finish with pomegranate seeds.
