Chotpoti is basically spicy peas and potato mix along with tamarind water. I try to keep it simple and health. If you want, you can use bit oil to fry the onion and cook potato and peas together.


• 1 and 1/2 cups dried peas

• 1 diced large boiled potato

• 6 boiled eggs

• 3 tablespoon chat masala

• 1/2 finely sliced medium size onion

• 4 finely green chillies chopped

• ½ cup chopped cucumber

• Coriander leaves chopped

• ½ teaspoon turmeric

• Salt

• 12 fuska shells(optional)

For Tamarind water:

• 50 gram tamarind

• 1 tablespoon roasted cumin powder

• 4 roasted dry chillies

• 1 tablespoons sugar

• Salt

• Black salt (optional)

How to make:

1. Soak dried peas overnight and wash well.

2. Boil peas with turmeric and 2 teaspoon salt till it becomes tender (I prefer to use pressure cooker to boil peas, less time consumes).

3. Soak tamarind half hour with one cup water. Crush the roasted chillies and add crushed chillies, salt, cumin powder and sugar in tamarind water.

4. Mash boiled potato and mix with boiled peas and chaat masala.

5. Take a serving bowl and serve pea and potato mix with 1 chopped egg, cucumber, chilli, onion, 2 fuska crushed and tamarind water.

6. Enjoy healthy homemade chotpoti.

Thank you Rownak, last time I had chopoti was like a year ago. They do sell it in toronto but the taste isn’t the same.

I make chotpoti with chick peas and potatoes not green peas. To the boiled chick peas and potatoes, I add tamarind, sugar, salt, green chillies, ground red chillies, cilantro, roasted ground zeera, chaat masala, chopped tomato and onion. Instead of tamarind sometimes I use yoghurt ( just as good) I call this cholay chaat.
Enjoying all the recipes!
