To Waffle or not?

Since I love sweet potato tikkis, I thought making them into waffles would make the absolute perfect base for a loaded chaat. This chaat is so flavorful — sweet, spicy, tangy. It has a it caramelized crisp layer encasing a creamy center. It’s a literal DREAM.

The crispy crevices of the waffle shape make for the perfect little nooks for the chutneys to puddle. While I made these sweet potato tikkis into waffles, if you don’t have a waffle maker you can absolutely make them into traditional tikkis.

Some other chaats we love are Air Fryer Aloo Chaat, Bhel Puri Cakes, & Aloo Chaat Boats.

How to make a Loaded Sweet Potato Waffle Chaat:

  • You’ll first want to cook the sweet potatoes until they are nice and soft. I’ve made this using orange sweet potatoes and white sweet potatoes. It’s great either way.
  • Once cooked, peel them and mash them in a large bowl along with the fresh herbs and spices.
  • Make an even amount of 1/4 cup rounds of the spiced mashed sweet potato mixture. Flatten them out slightly and dust with semolina/fine rava.

  • Grease your waffle maker with oil or ghee and warm it up. Once it’s nice and hot, add the sweet potato rounds to make your waffles.
  • Assemble your chaat by stacking a few waffles and up drizzle with yogurt, cilantro mint chutney, sweet tamarind chutney, pomegranate arils, crunchy sev, diced chilies and fresh chopped cilantro. Extra squeezes of lemon are never a bad idea as is a pinch of chaat masala.
