Roasted Red Beet Chaat!


Roasted Beet Salad may be the most popular trend but has anybody tried a Roasted Beet Chaat?  Chaats are Indian street snacks popularly craved for their sweet-spicy-tangy flavors. Roasted beets pair very well with Indian chutneys and this is one junk food your body will love too.

I always appreciated beets more for their color than their taste. After I was introduced to roasting them, there was no looking back. I regularly make roasted beet dip and beet salad but wanted to try something new. This Roasted Beet Chaat is the perfect way to start my New Years on a healthy note.


I made them two ways, one like a regular bhel with rice crisps, sweet tamarind and spicy mint chutney and the other like a chaat with yogurt, chaat masala, dried mint and cilantro leaves. Both ways it tastes awesome. You can add/substitute ingredients to change flavors.



Roasted Beet Bhel:
  • Handful of roasted rice crisps /murmura
  • 1 roasted red beet, de-skinned and chopped into chunks
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon sweet tamarind chutney
  • 1 teaspoon spicy mint chutney
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red onion
  • lime juice
  • few roasted peanuts for crunch
  • sev- fried gram flour noodles for garnish
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Taste to balance flavors.
Top with Sev and serve Immediately.
