Kulle ki Chaat is a street food popular in Old Delhi region. Kulle means a kulhar/cup. When Chaat (salad) is served in a vegetable or fruit cup, it is known as Kulle ki Chaat. In this recipe, I have used boiled potatoes as Chaat holder.

1/2 Cup Brown Chikpea/ kala Channa, soaked and cooked with little salt
1 tsp Chat masala powder
1 tsp Roasted Jeera powder
2 tbsp Cup Dates chutney or Tamarind sweet chutney

Halve the potatoes and scoop out the center. Keep it aside. You can also save the scooped Potato bits.

Mix the ingredients for the filling. You can add the scooped potato bits to the filling mixture.
Add a tsp of the base mixture to each of the halved potatoes. Spread it evenly.
Fill the potato cup with the filling.
