|This deliciously spicy recipe is from Tom Hunt's book Eating for People, Pleasure & Planet, an inspiring exploration into the question of what sustainable food really is and a manifesto for how to achieve it while eating healthier and better tasting food.|
Tom says, "I first discovered 'chaat' on my travels through India, where it's served on the streets on palm leaf plates as a delicious snack. This recipe is a take on 'aloo chaat'. It's similar to a potato hash, but with lots of extra spice - perfect for brunch. The tomatoes fried amongst the potatoes become sweet juicy bombs of flavour that pop and explode in yoru mouth. Splatter the dish with plenty of yoghurt and tamarind to cool the spices and enrich the dish.
"The 'chaat masala' is an aromatic concoction of spices that gives chaat its unique flavour. You can buy it from Indian shops or online, however, it's easy to make yourself - and the freshly ground spices are always more fragrant. If you can't find these ingredients, garam masala will make an adequate replacement."
