Sweet Potato Chaat is a delicious healthy salad that's perfect for summer, or anytime of the year. It's packed with all those traditional chaat flavors.
I find it quite comical when I think about how my husband achieved Yelp Elite Status. Let it be known that I'm still not Yelp Elite. Before I came along, he barely thought about food let alone review restaurants on Yelp.
Once I came into the picture, we would dine at restaurants and I would take a million pictures of food with my camera. Yes, anyone whose with a food blogger eats cold food. So while I'd take my pictures, he got bored, and started taking pictures on his phone. He'd review the restaurant and post his pictures on Yelp. Additionally, Mr. Honeywhatscooking read up on how to become Yelp Elite.
Needless to say, with time, consistency, and lots of dedication, Mr. Honeywhatscooking became Yelp Elite, and his wife - a food blogger, is not. He never fails to rub that in my face, and I never fail to remind him I'm the reason he has elite status.
And now this Sweet Potato Chaat. When summer rolls around, I love eating lighter foods using fresh ingredients. This chaat is similar to my Quinoa Bhel Salad. Hope you guys try it!

Looks so yummy. I made this today and my family loved it. So healthy!!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
Thanks Neelam. Yay... so glad it turned out well. 🙂
Hi I would love to try this recipe..is there an alternative for baking sweet potatoes because I don’t own an oven?
Hi Manasi.. so I would saute the sweet potatoes on a castiron skillet (preferably), or you can use a nonstick. Basically you want to soften and roast the potatoes so it gets a little crispy. And just sprinkle some chat masala at the end. Hope that helps. Let me know.
I love chaat and this looks like a delicious twist
Thanks Salma. Appreciate it. Hope you try it. 🙂
