How to make Air Fryer Aloo Chaat

  • The star of this dish is a good potato. My favorite potatoes to use in this chaat are baby fingerlings or russet potatoes cut into small one inch cubes.

  • Once you’ve par boiled your potatoes, drain them before tossing them in ghee/oil and spices. Air Fry them until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
