It’s no surprise that I love tostadas. I eat them on average once a week loaded with all my favorite Mexican flavors. 

Tostadas are my quick weeknight meal and I always use “baked” tostadas. They’re easy to whip up, chopping is a breeze now that I’ve purchased the Onion Chopper Pro.

My Baked Aloo Chaat Tostadas taste just like Aloo Papdi Chaat. It’s all that desi flavor on a baked tostada, and trust me, you’re not gonna miss the greasy papdi.

Both my husband and I loved these desi tostadas as they were light, flavorful, and delicious. Additionally, I use gluten-free baked corn tostadas so they’re pretty healthy too.

What is Aloo Papdi Chaat?

Papdi Chaat or Chaat Papdi is a widely popular Indian street food in Northern India. Papdi is a crispy fried flattened dough that is topped with seasoned potatoes, chickpeas, onions, tomatoes, yogurt, cilantro chutney, tamarind chutney, sev, and masalas.

how to make baked aloo chaat tostadas step by step?

Make the Aloo Chaat Veggie Mixture

1. Start by boiling 3 medium russet potatoes. I used my Instant Pot. Add 1 cup of water with the potatoes, 12 minutes on High Pressure, Natural Release.
2. To a large mixing bowl, add rinsed chickpeas. Cube the potatoes. Finely chop the onions and tomatoes. I love my new Chopper Gadget.
3. Add all the spices.
4. Mix well. Set aside.

Prepare the Cilantro Chutney

1. Combine all the ingredients for the chutney in a coffee grinder.
2. Blend. You can add water as needed.

Assemble Aloo Chaat Tostadas

1. Warm-up 3 tostadas in a toaster oven at 400 degrees – bake.
2. Top with the veggie mixture.
3. Top with yogurt – dilute it slightly if need be, cilantro chutney, and store-bought tamarind date chutney.
4. Finish it off with chopped cilantro, red chili powder, and Kala Jeera powder (roasted cumin powder or you can use regular cumin powder).
